Hungarian-gypsy twist to Redwood Symphony season opener

Redwood Symphony opens its 35th season with a delightful Hungarian-gypsy twist and a guest cimbalonist to steal the show on Saturday, Sept. 28, at 8 p.m. in the Main Theater at Cañada College, 4200 Farm Hill Blvd., Redwood City.
“Our season-opener is designed to showcase our amazing orchestra’s virtuosity,” said founder and Music Director Eric K. “Guest cimbalonist Jay Stebley will perform in two rarely performed works: Kodály’s Háry János Suite and Stravinsky’s Ragtime for 11 Instruments.”
Then, the powerhouse brass section will be showcased in Michael Tilson Thomas’ Street Song for Symphonic Brass in a tribute to the departing San Francisco Music Director’s final season.
“Our finale will be one of my specialties – the Brahms Piano Quartet in G Minor, in Arnold Schoenberg’s knock-’em-dead orchestration. Nicknamed ‘Brahms’ Fifth Symphony’ and sporting a gypsy-style prestissimo finale, this show-stopper will merely be the opener to a spectacular 35th season,” said Maestro Eric K, who will give a free, pre-concert lecture at 7 p.m.
