Vallejo Symphony – Worlds Away

Matt Allen Vallejo Symphony

Mussorgsky, Night on Bald Mountain
Saint-Saëns, Cello Concerto No. 1 in A minor, Op. 33 (featuring Matt Allen)
Ravel, Pavane for a Dead Princess
Gershwin, An American in Paris

Join us at the Vallejo Symphony’s season-opener for a classical roller coaster ride: from “Night on Bald Mountain,” the devilish tone-poem that played an iconic role in Disney’s innovative film “Fantasia,” to Saint-Saëns searing Cello Concerto no. 1. In the concert’s second half, Ravel’s “Pavane for a Dead Princess” returns us to serenity in time to enjoy the innocent good fun of Gershwin’s “An American in Paris” one of the few works in the repertoire to use taxi horns as a musical instrument.

Cellist Matt Allen is quickly establishing himself as one of the leading young American cellists. Mr. Allen has won the gold medal in three of the world’s most important competitions; the Carlos Prieto International Cello Competition in Mexico, the Stulberg International String Competition in Michigan, and the Gaspar Cassado International Cello Competition in Japan.
