Our March concert bids a fond farewell to the dark days and starry night skies of winter – and, by the way, don’t forget to turn your clocks forward one hour after this concert for Daylight Savings on Sunday, March 10th – with a program that celebrates the nature of the universe, and the place music holds within it. French composer Guillaume Connesson’s fascinating Cosmic Trilogy explores the entire span of existence as we know it, posing question after musical question and offering gorgeous responses. Ralph Vaughn Williams’ Serenade to Music offers a ravishing paean to the music of the spheres, which reportedly brought audience member Igor Stravinsky to tears at its premiere performance. To conclude a mystical evening, prepare to enjoy Johannes Brahms’ magnificent masterpiece for soloists, chorus, and orchestra, his incandescent Deutsches Requiem. Join your Long Beach Symphony for an early celebration of Spring and new beginnings!
