Lang-Lessing on tonight’s SAS Concert

Jack Fishman’s recent blog post included the following video clip interview with the San Antonio Symphony’s conductor, Sebastian Lang-Lessing, discussing the Beethoven Festival which opens with tonight’s performance. I’m happy to have tickets for the performances of all nine Beethoven Symphonies.

Am I excited? Yes. Yes, I am!

My Friday night plans – the final classical music concert of the season.

This weekend the San Antonio Symphony will be presenting its final classical music concerts of the 2010-2011 season. Yes, I plan to be in my regular seat at the Majestic Theatre tonight enjoying it.

Titled Gluzman Plays Beethoven, these Friday and Saturday night performances will open with guest violinist Vadim Gluzman featured in Beethoven’s Violin Concerto. And the closing work will be Also Sprach Zarathustra! by Strauss.

Below is a short interview conducted by Jack Fishman with our Music Director, Sebastian Lang-Lessing, in which SLL discusses the Strausss piece he’ll be conducting.
