TRANSLATIONS: CONNECTIONS BETWEEN TIMES, PLACES, AND CULTURES
Our Translations concert on January 28 and 29, 2023 will be unique and breathtaking! It features the world premiere of a new piano concerto by Turkish composer and pianist Hakan Ali Toker, commissioned specifically for the Santa Cruz Symphony. The program also features vivid translations of Point Reyes wildlife by Northern California native Gabriella Smith, and Ravel’s homage to the Parisian Baroque à la François Couperin.
