California Symphony Broadcast – EPISODE SIX

On Classical KDFC


Broadcast on Classical KDFC

This is a new monthly broadcast series—the fourth Sunday of the month—features eight California Symphony concerts from recent years, led by Music Director Donato Cabrera.

Highlighting each performance is a work by one of their “Young American Composers in Residence”, the unique opportunity that allows a composer a partnership with the orchestra for three years.

Hosted by KDFC and with comments from Donato Cabrera, it’s a chance to hear old favorites from Beethoven, Mozart, Brahms and Grieg mixed with brand new works, played by the ensemble they were written for.
