The La Jolla Symphony in California has announced details of its 2010-11 season, which will open in October with Music Director Steven Schick leading Bernstein’s Overture to Candide, Mahler’s Symphony No. 1, and a multimedia presentation of Scriabin’s Prometheus featuring pianist Noriko Kawai and color projections designed by Ross Karre. The season will feature several choral works, including Beethoven’s Missa Solemnis, Bach’s St. Matthew Passion, and Haydn’s Harmonie-Messe. Also planned are two world premieres: Mark Applebaum’s Concerto for Florist and Orchestra, featuring horticulturist James DelPrince creating floral designs onstage, and Phil Kline’s A Dream and Its Opposite, commissioned and performed by Real Quiet, a trio featuring cellist Felix Fan, pianist Andrew Russo, and percussionist David Cossin. Other works will include Bartók’s Concerto for Orchestra; Shostakovich’s Symphony No. 1; Brahms’s Variations on a Theme by Haydn; Debussy’s Jeux and “Nuages” and “Fêtes” from Nocturnes; and Iannis Xenakis’s Metastasis. All concerts will be held in the Mandeville Auditorium at the University of California, San Diego.
