Guest Conductor Karina Canellakis makes her Phoenix Symphony debut in an imaginative, impressionistic program sure to make a splash. Debussy, Britten and Sibelius contribute works that capture the many moods of the sea, with its sun-drenched waves and watery depths. Pianist Stewart Goodyear, proclaimed “a phenomenon” by The Los Angeles Times, returns to Symphony Hall in the sensuous “Egyptian” Piano Concerto of French composer Camille Saint-Saëns, who reportedly wrote this dazzling work after a boat ride up the Nile.
