Other season highlights include "Boléro" (Sept. 23 to 25), "Handel's Messiah" (Dec. 9 to 19), "Brandenburg Festival" (Jan. 14 to 17), "Cirque de la Symphonie" (Feb. 25 to 27), the two-week "World's Greatest Piano Concerto Festival" (May 5 to 14) and "The Red Violin" (May 19 and 21) featuring Concertmaster Steven Moeckel.
During the Holocaust, the works of numerous composers were banned and entire schools of composition were eradicated while small pockets of music thrived in concentration camps across Eastern Europe. Throughout the 2010/11 season, The Phoenix Symphony will explore and perform many of these works for the first time in its series "Rediscovered Masters." These composers include such masters as Pavel Haas, Mieczyslaw Weinberg, Hans Krása, Erwin Schuloff, Marcel Tyberg and Kurt Weill. Throughout the season, The Phoenix Symphony and the Arizona State University Center for Jewish Studies, in conjunction with the United States Holocaust Memorial Museum, will present a series of lectures, films and discussions around the Valley, linking the musical presentations to the cultural and historical themes of assimilation, modernization, destruction and remembrance.
