Catch the final performance of La Jolla Music Society’s SummerFest
Music Director Inon Barnatan created a spectacular program titled “Under the Influence,” which explores the muses that inspired the greatest composers in history!
This Friday, August 26, sit back and enjoy “Finale: Metamorphosis,” the culmination of La Jolla’s Music Society SummerFest! The orchestra will transform into a trio, a string orchestra to a septet, and a quartet to a string orchestra! The merry pranks of the medieval German folklore hero Till Eulenspiegel will be followed by the stirring postwar elegy of Metamorphosen in two of Strauss’s most brilliant works. The festival closes with a heightened reimagining of Schubert’s powerful String Quartet re-envisioned by Mahler as a symphonic work performed by an all-star string ensemble.
There will also be a prelude performance by Pelia Quartet, where they will perform Ravel’s String Quartet in F Major. The show will start at 6:30 pm.
Tickets range from $45 – $110, and the concert will take place in the stunning Conrad Prebys Performing Arts Center.
