The 2016/17 Season kicks off with the epic grandeur of Beethoven’s Fifth Symphony. Tito Muñoz, in his third season as Virginia G. Piper Music Director, leads The Phoenix Symphony in a masterful interpretation of Beethoven’s ever popular and powerful “Victory” symphony. Joining this program is 2009 London International Piano Competition winner, Behzod Abduraimov performing Rachmaninoff’s technically challenging and compositionally brilliant Rhapsody on a Theme of Paganini. Maestro Muñoz continues his tradition of highlighting young American composers by featuring Nina C. Young and her “sonic experience” composition, Remnants, which invites listeners to perceive the orchestra as one giant instrument – a resonating body.
