The evening opens with the world premiere of a symphonic poem inspired by Hans Christian Andersen's story 'The Shadow.' Composer Avner Dorman, one of Israel's most successful and renowned young composers, created the new work as part of Meet the Composer's 'Magnum Opus' project, Phase Two. The Marin Symphony is honored to have been chosen as one of the orchestras to launch this unusual project and to continue participation in it. William Walton's Viola Concerto features Marin Symphony's principal violist, Jenny Douglass, performing one of the most difficult works in the entire viola repertoire. This program devoted to youthful brilliance concludes with Pyotr Ilyich Tchaikovsky's turbulent Symphony No. 4.
