What's Happening at the Symphony

What's Your Music: Pianist Rodolfo Leone

26-year-old pianist Rodolfo Leone takes the Copley Symphony Hall stage this weekend to perform Liszt's Piano Concerto No. 1. We asked Rodolfo to share his music with us and what to expect this weekend with our program The Young Romantics.

1. Which concert in this season at The San Diego Symphony would you recommend to someone who has never been to the Symphony?

Discovery Night with Rafael Payare.

2. Why did you choose that concert as their first concert?

This is a great first performance for someone who has never been to the Symphony: filled with energy and memorable themes, it’s sure to be an unforgettable experience. The full power of an orchestral forte is something that can only be experienced by coming into the concert hall!

3. What concert do you want to attend during the 2018-19 season at the San Diego Symphony?

Augustin Hadelich Returns

4. What excites you about your choice?

Augustin Hadelich is one of the greatest violinists around and his performance is sure to leave the audience speechless! I expect to be swept into the world of exuberant folk tunes and dances, which inspired Brahms and Bartók throughout their lives. 

5. Tell us about “your music” this season at the San Diego Symphony.

I’m performing piano on the program The Young Romantics. The audience’s imagination will be sparked with the high octane First Piano Concerto by Liszt and the vivid narratives of Mendelssohn’s Hebrides Overture and the Symphonie Fantistique by Berlioz. 

The San Diego Symphony's What's Your Music series asks artists and musicians to share their music with us.
