Local Spotlight: Marian Gilbert

This weekend, the San Luis Obispo Chamber Orchestra is tackling two monumental pieces by Ludwig Van Beethoven.

The first is his fifth symphony, then Marian Gilbert will join the orchestra to perform his third piano concerto.

"You can hear the influence of Mozart and how he explores it and makes it more dramatic, leading up to the fourth and fifth concerto, which are really big works," Gilbert said.

"And the more we hear this music, the more that you bring people to concerts, the more they hear a Beethoven concerto, the second time, the third time that they hear it, they stick to little pieces in their mind...They become familiar and so the piece becomes a part of them."

Gilbert adds,"So I think these timeless, these great artists that we listen to, these great composers are just magnificent geniuses, and it just improves our life."

The all Beethoven concert is this Sunday afternoon at 3:00 at Trinity United Methodist Church in Los Osos.

A $10 donation is requested at the door.
