COSTA MESA — Violinist Anne Akiko Meyers will perform with Orange County’s Pacific Symphony, conducted by Carl St. Clair, on Friday and Saturday, June 15-16, at 8 p.m. at Segerstrom Center for the Arts, 600 Town Center Dr., Costa Mesa.
The program includes Glinka: Overture to “Ruslan and Ludmilla”; and Bernstein: “Somewhere” from “West Side Story.”
Meyers is one of today’s premier violinists and has been described by The Los Angeles Times as a performer of “vigorous mastery, unflinching technical skills and stylish elegance.” She joins the orchestra to perform Lauridsen’s ethereal “O Magnum Mysterium” and Ravel’s rhapsodic “Tzigane.”
Then, Concertmaster-Designate Dennis Kim will be featured in “A Hero’s Life” (Ein Heldenleben), Strauss’ autobiographical tone poem depicting confidence, unrest, the battle of life, love and serenity.
