Artistic & Music Director, Ramón Tebar, designs five sundry and spirited performances

PALM BEACH, FL – Internationally recognized Ramón Tebar, serving as Artistic & Music Director for the Palm Beach Symphony, has created a series of five concerts for the 2014-2015 Season designed to offer a multifarious arrangement of classical music in the most spirited of performances. “Serenading Chopin” kicks off the season on December 3rd at Society of the Four Arts featuring Grieg’s Holberg Suite, Op. 40, Tchaikovsky’s Serenade for Strings, Op. 48 and world renowned American pianist, Agustín Anievas, playing Chopin Piano Concerto No. 1, Op.11. Anievas, whose performances have enriched music lovers all over the world, has appeared in recital and with orchestras in the major music centers of the United States, including NYC’s Carnegie Hall and Lincoln Center, as well as in Europe, North and South America, Australia, and many Middle East and Far East countries. The first concert of the New Year, “Zukunftsmusik: Music of the Future,” includes works by Wagner and Bruckner’s Symphony No. 4 in Palm Beach Atlantic’s DeSantis Family Chapel on January 5th. The German word “Zukunftsmusik,” translated in English to “music of the future,” is how Wagner’s music was defined. Bruckner, an heir of this “new” music, makes the pairing of both composers most appropriate. Following on the 28th of January, the Symphony presents “Two Great Seconds” at Mar-a-Lago performing two of the greatest second symphonies of all times. Bold and warm, Brahms’ Symphony No. 2, Op. 73 and Sibelius’ Symphony No. 2, Op. 43, both in the same key of D Major, will permeate the estate’s Grand Ballroom.Palm Beach Symphony soloists will be featured in concert at the gothic Bethesda- By-The-Sea Episcopal Church on February 23rd. The world-class musicians will play The Six Brandenburg Concerti, BWV 1046- 1051 in a performance titled “Bach’s Baroque Masterworks.” The orchestra will return to Mar-a-Lago on March 18th for a grandiose conclusion to the Season with “Symphonic (R)evolution.” The performance will include Shostakovich’s Festive Overture, Op. 96 and Symphony No. 12, Op. 112, describing the Russian Revolution. A special appearance by Palm Beach favorite and Russian born Lola for Rachmaninov’s Rhapsody on a Theme by Paganini, Op. 43. “From Bach to Rachmaninov and from Classics to Romantics, we have it all in Palm Beach Symphony’s new season,” notes Tebar, who will be conducting all performances. “From the smaller ensemble of the Baroque masterworks with the Brandenburg cycle, to the leading roles that Wagner and Bruckner took with Music of the Future, and the modernism of Shostakovic, this is a season full of excitement and variety that you cannot miss.” Single tickets, season subscriptions and memberships are now available and offered at a variety of levels.
