From the vivid first notes of the Capriccio espagnol to the joyous close of Beethoven’s Seventh Symphony, this program is sheer delight. The Capriccio, a feast of Spanish melodies and a showpiece for soloists within the orchestra, introduces newcomer Valentina Peleggi, the current winner of Marin Alsop’s Taki Concordia fellowship. Concertmaster Jonathan Carney takes center stage in Walton’s tempestuous Violin Concerto, shining a light on his virtuosic talents. Beethoven called his Seventh Symphony “one of the happiest products of my poor talents.”
