The brilliant trumpet fanfare from Beethoven’s Leonore Overture is a fitting start to the VSO’s Masterworks season. The balance of the program includes one undeservedly obscure work by the “Spanish Mozart,” and one work which richly deserves its extreme popularity, Tchaikovsky’s first piano concerto. A graduate of the Peabody Conservatory, soloist Alon Goldstein’s debut at age eighteen with the Israel Philharmonic under Zubin Mehta has been followed by non-stop concertizing in the U.S. and abroad.
