Santa Rosa Symphony Shadows and Sunshine

Acclaimed American composer Missy Mazzoli’s Sinfonia, commissioned by the Los Angeles Philharmonic, evokes the stark grandeur of the creation of the cosmos. Rising star Simone Porter glows in Jean Sibelius’ brooding and tempestuous Violin Concerto in D minor, a work of hypnotic intensity and aching vulnerability. Johannes Brahms’ mature orchestral masterpiece, Symphony No. 2, is a lilting and richly melodic portrait of the German countryside, spinning shadow and sunshine into a tapestry of warmth, beauty and jubilation.

"Porter’s assured, lovingly lyrical, occasionally frisky playing only confirmed what is becoming common knowledge in the musical world: that she is on the cusp of a major career." – Los Angeles Times
