This night was particularly special as the symphony highlighted four works from the genre of the capriccio, humorous pieces of music that joyfully celebrate the completion of seventy years of “Great Music Live” in Monterey. Dvořák, Saint-Saëns, Rimsky-Korsakov, and Tchaikovsky were all featured, each displaying the delightful moods and colors of orchestral music.
