MEGADETH mainman Dave Mustaine talks about Symphony Interrupted and reflects on his career, musical influences and how the band got started with Pimm Fox on Bloomberg Television's Taking Stock.
Mustaine will be a featured soloist with the San Diego Symphony on April 12th. The classical special concert, billed as Symphony Interrupted, will take place at Copley Symphony Hall in San Diego, California. A limited amount of tickets are still available at this location.
Mustaine checked in with the following:“My trusty warhorse and I are off to start the Symphony Interrupted rehearsal.”
Ken-David Masur, Grammy-nominated producer and associate conductor of the San Diego Symphony, and Ann Spira Campbell, deputy general director of the San Diego Opera, spoke to the Valley News about Symphony Interrupted.
Masur said “We will perform the Roman Carnival overture by BERLIOZ to set (Mustaine) up as a soloist, and he will come out like all the other great soloists in the world come up on stage, and then we will perform VIVALDI’s Four Seasons. It was clear to me that (Mustaine) sees himself as a musician in the whole sense and actually it’s been also very humbling that he would like to perform with the symphony.”
Campbell said: “When I met Dave in person I saw the most talented, incredible human being – someone with 5 million Facebook followers who appeals to a younger generation. You have a real leader here – someone the younger generation looks up to as an edgy artist. To be a draw for the younger generation is too beautiful of a storm to pass up."
