Elena Schwarz, conductor
Paul Huang, violin

The acclaimed young violinist Paul Huang takes on Barber’s beloved violin concerto that overflows with gorgeous melodies. Australian conductor Elena Schwarz leads the San Diego Symphony Orchestra in works by composer Lei Liang’s Bamboo Lights a vivid, atmospheric and almost visual work and Stravinsky’s masterful Symphony in Three Movements written during his time in Los Angeles and reflects his clear, bright and shimmering neo-classical voice. Conductor Steve Schick takes the podium for Californian composer Rand Steiger’s Triton’s Rise and in the Icelandic composer Anna Thorvaldsdóttir’s METACOSMOS which she describes as, “constructed around the natural balance between beauty and chaos – how elements can come together in (seemingly) utter chaos to create a unified, structure.”
