In our final program of the season, cellist Julian Schwarz, superstar-in-the-making, makes his first appearance with Symphony Silicon Valley performing Elgar’s great concerto. This follows the return of the Chorale and orchestra in Vaughan Williams elegiac Serenade to Music; and the evening is capped by Schumann’s magnificent, almost euphoric Rhenish Symphony. English maestro William Boughton will bring the year to a brilliant close.

A summit meeting between some of the leading 19th-century composers of France and Russia, this concert will unite the refined elegance of Fauré with the stronger accents of two members of the ‟Mighty Handful” of St. Petersburg. The alliance is cemented by the orchestration of Mussorgsky’s piano work Pictures at an Exhibition, made by Maurice Ravel in Paris.
