The California Youth Symphony senior orchestra will perform for Music in the Mountains at the Amaral Family Center, Nevada County Fairgrounds, in Grass Valley, CA. This is a wonderful honor and opportunity for us to see some of the best young musicians performing classical music today, and Maestro Eylar has selected his repertoire appropriately. For only the second time in his 29-year tenure as Music Director, Maestro Eylar has chosen to program one of the seminal, titanic works of the late 19th Century: Richard Strauss’s masterpiece Don Quixote. Composed in 1897 for solo cello and massive orchestra, the work has from the beginning always been considered the last word in descriptive orchestral writing, virtuosity, and astonishing orchestral effects. CYS cello soloist is Davis You, playing the role of the Don himself, as we follow the knight errant in his various misadventures. The program also features Catherine Huang, our Young Artist Competition winner, who will perform Rachmaninov’s dazzling Rhapsody on a Theme of Paganini, as well as Chabrier’s wonderfully evocative España.
