Fresh Inspirations: Cuong, Berlioz, Walton, and Ravel

In this performance, Viet Cuong, California Symphony’s Composer-in-Residence from 2020-2023, premieres his work Stargazer featuring Sarah Cahill at the piano. Walton’s Symphony No. 1 continues Music Director Donato Cabrera’s exploration of works written around the time of the Second World War, with its time-honored trajectory from darkness to light. Ravel’s audience favorite Mother Goose Suite ends the program.
