ARC Orchestra: Guest Soloist Natsuki Fukasawa Plays Beethoven
Soloist Natsuki Fukasawa plays Beethoven's last and most often performed piano concerto, "The Emperor Concerto." Bold and heroic, the piece reflects the composer's fiery spirit.
Of her playing the Monterey Peninsula Review said, "Her virtuoso skills became quite evident... her skills always served a musical purpose to bring a musical score to life in a vital and compelling manner... her extraordinarily beautiful cantabile...was a knockout. She took us over the top in the final pages of this mighty work."
The orchestra will also perform Beethoven's 6th Symphony. "Placid and cheerful" aren't words usually associated with his work, but this symphony expresses the composer's love of nature. It is a walk through the countryside, celebrating the beauty and solace that nature brings. If that sounds too mellow for you, have no fear, Beethoven also goes off. Nature's raw fury is unleashed in the thunderstorm in the fourth movement.
Great music continues to be composed and to prove it, the orchestra presents Nancy Bloomer Deussen's American Hymn. It is an accessible piece from an award-winning Bay Area composer.
