New West Symphony Concert Presents Pianist Sunday In Santa Monica:

Pianist Andrew von Oeyen returns to the New West Symphony to perform two concertos in the second Masterpiece Series concert of the 2013/2014 season this Sunday in Santa Monica

Von Oeyen, who last appeared with the orchestra in the 2010 season, will play Franz Joseph Haydn’s Concerto in D Major for Piano & Orchestra, Hob. XVIII:11 and Sergei Prokofiev’s Piano Concerto No. 4 in B-flat Major for Piano Left Hand, Opus 53.

Music director Marcelo Lehninger will lead three performances of the program that also includes Prokofiev’s Classical Symphony, Opus 25 and the Symphony No. 35 in D Major, K. 385, “Haffner” by Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart.

The performance will take place Sunday at 4 pm at Santa Monica’s Barnum Hall, located at 601 Pico Boulevard in Santa Monica.

The program will also be held tonight at 8 pm at the Oxnard Performing Arts Center, located at 800 Hobson Way in Oxnard and Saturday at 8 pm at the Thousand Oaks Civic Arts Plaza, located at 2100 Thousand Oaks Boulevard in Thousand Oaks.

Von Oeyen was born in Malibu, California in 1979 and began piano lessons at age five.

He made his solo orchestra debut at age ten and at age sixteen made his debut with Esa-Pekka Solonen and the Los Angeles Philharmonic. He performs regularly with major orchestras in performances around the world. In addition to his orchestral appearances, he tours extensively as a recitalist and appears frequently in duo recitals with violinist Sarah Chang.

The lively and informative pre-concert discussion called Hear & Now about the music on the program begins at 7 pm on Friday and Saturday evening and 3 pm on Sunday afternoon. The programs are free and open to ticket holders for the respective performances.
