Mariinsky Orchestra, Valery Gergiev

  • Segerstrom Center for the Arts 600 Town Center Drive Costa Mesa, CA, 92626 United States (map)

The “marvelous” (Los Angeles Times) Mariinsky Orchestra and its Music Director Valery Gergiev—renowned for their high-octane, virtuosic performances—perform two masterpieces that will set pulses racing. The Brahms concerto’s muscular solo part, rich orchestration—including a sublime cello solo in the Andante—and melodic splendor make it one of his most enduring works, while Strauss’s epic tone poem Ein Heldenleben excites with its lush orchestration and a cinematic sensibility, especially in a famous scene where the hero battles his critics.
