Under the hand of fourth-year music director Donato Cabrera, the California Symphony recently held its first-ever performance of Beethoven’s widely lauded Symphony No. 4. The ensemble also treated fans to a rendition of Beethoven’s Piano Concerto No. 23, which was elegantly performed by pianist Maria Radutu. The Romanian-Austrian pianist has appeared as a solo artist in many renowned venues across the globe, including the Golden Hall of the Vienna Musikverein, the Great Hall of the Vienna Konzerthaus, and the Salle Gaveau in Paris.

The kickoff piece for the night was a number entitled “Peace Love Light YOUMEONE” by Christopher Theofanidis, a Grammy-nominated composer and former composer-in-residence of the California Symphony.

The ongoing 2016-2017 season marks a milestone for the California Symphony, as it celebrates 30 years of performing classical and American works for its patrons.
