Beethoven Symphony No. 5
Naples Philharmonic Masterworks

Naples Philharmonic
Alexander Shelley, conductor
Gabriela Montero, piano

Mayer — Faust Overture
Gabriela Montero — Piano Concerto No. 1, “Latin Concerto”
Beethoven — Symphony No. 5

The Naples Philharmonic presents a powerful performance highlighting the works of two outstanding female composers and concluding with Beethoven’s Fifth Symphony, universally recognized by its iconic four-note introduction. Led by guest conductor Alexander Shelley — music director of the National Arts Centre in Ontario and son of British pianist and conductor Howard Shelley, who both performed with and conducted the Naples Philharmonic on many occasions in the past — the orchestra performs prolific 19th-century composer Emilie Mayer’s Faust Overture, a piece that is highly representative of her bold, complex style. Latin Grammy Award-winning composer and pianist Gabriela Montero also joins the orchestra to perform her own Piano Concerto No. 1, “Latin,” which displays the complexities of Latin American life through colorful music complemented by Montero’s bold and powerful technique. 

Prelude at 7pm
Join the conductor before the performance for an insightful 30-minute prelude discussion about the program.
