Santa Barbara Symphony Presents
Rhapsody in Blue

Nir Kabaretti , Conductor
Jeffrey Biegel, Piano

The Santa Barbara Symphony launches its 65th anniversary season with a program every bit equal to the occasion, beginning with Ernest von Dohnányi’s folk- and gospel-infused American Rhapsody. Chart-topping recording artist Jeffrey Biegel, renowned for his interpretations of works by both classic and contemporary composers, next takes to the piano for George Gershwin’s wonderfully intoxicating Rhapsody in Blue. The program concludes with Berlioz’s epic Symphonie Fantastique, which captures the young composer’s consuming passion for an actress, and clearly exudes the revolutionary spirit of 1830 France.

Ernest Dohnanyi: American Rhapsody
Gershwin: Rhapsody in Blue
Berlioz: Symphonie fantastique
