Luscious Noise

with members of the San Diego Symphony

Classical

Sun, Oct 24
7:30pm

Luscious Noise is a revolutionary experiment in classical music. Conductor John Stubbs wants to prove that Beethoven and Bach can sound as good in a club as in a concert hall. Besides featuring San Diego’s top classical musicians, this multi-media event sometimes features ballet dancers or classic film clips on screen.

LUSCIOUS OCTOBER NIGHTS

Sweet Music & Multi-Media To Die For.

San Diego, CA (October 9, 2010) — Fittingly timed with the approaching
Hunter’s Moon, Luscious Noise returns to Anthology on October 24th with the
program “October Nights.”

Audiences will succumb to the Transylvania Effect as members of the San
Diego Symphony perform a de-luscious mélange of sweet music filled with
Shubert, Stravinsky, Vivaldi, and Rachmaninov.
Adding to the effect — a touch of live opera and to die for multi-media
including a spell-binding clip from the 1931 “Dracula” film with Béla Lugosi
— and risen from the archives — rare footage from the 1931 Spanish
adaptation of “Drácula” starring Carlos Villarias.

PRODUCTION HIGHLIGHTS

• Special guest pianist Jessie Chang who will perform Rachmaninov’s “Andante” and “Prelude No. 5″
• Baritone Mark Wischkaemper who will sing:
