Classical Pick of the Week: Beethoven's Ninth and Shostakovich's Tenth
Need some entertainment over the Thanksgiving holiday? Sir John Eliot Gardiner returns to Orange County this week with the Orchestre Révolutionnaire et Romantique and the Monteverdi Choir. Since it's Gardiner, expect all Beethoven, with a short cantata ("Meeresstille und glückliche Fahrt") and his Ninth Symphony. Concert is this Tuesday at 8 p.m., at the Renée & Henry Segerstrom Concert Hall.The dynamic duo of Petrenko and Trpčeski return next weekend to perform the Grieg Piano Concerto the way it was meant to be played and Shostakovich's exciting 10th Symphony (seriously!). The artists are well known for their interpretations of Russian and Romantic repertoire, and have performed the Grieg with our friends up north. There are shows at Friday at 8 p.m. (so as to not interfere with your Black Friday shopping), and Saturday and Sunday at 2 p.m.
