Franck's Symphony in D minor is not a work that plays itself. It needs coaxing, constant attention and a sensitivity to nuance. All of that it received from conductor Jorge Mester and the Pasadena Symphony on a three-part program Saturday at the Pasadena Civic Auditorium. The concert opened the orchestra's 69th season. Mester appeared more engaged in this work than in anything else on the program.

One of the more elegant and accomplished pianists on the planet, Jorge Federico Osorio has been playing with our local orchestras over the past two decades. He always brings new insights, eloquent readings and an effortless virtuosity to all his assignments. Saturday night he came to the Long Beach Symphony and played not one, but two concertos. In the first, essaying the atmospheric solo in Manuel de Falla's "Nights in the Gardens of Spain," he created mellow sounds and magical arpeggios.

Even with the most sophisticated and state-of-the-art sound systems, acoustical potluck is what listeners at outdoor concerts receive. Forget musical conditions--what matters is climate and humidity. Certain environments deliver sound best, and luck and the whims of Mother Nature play important roles. The Pacific Symphony got lucky at the second event in its 1999 summer series at Irvine Meadows Amphitheatre on Saturday night.

Eleven years after its debut appearance at the Dorothy Chandler Pavilion, the Mexico City Philharmonic returned Tuesday night to play in Hollywood Bowl. Even with an oddball, if respectable, conductor on its podium, the youngish orchestra still managed to reiterate its symphonic accomplishments, in a conservative program played before an audience reported to number 10,156 listeners. Herrera de la Fuente is already the ensemble's third music director in its 14-year history.

Despite the presence of a large and festive audience, tall arches of multicolored balloons outside the auditorium and considerable societal hubbub in the foyer, the opening of the Pasadena Symphony's 66th season, Saturday night in Pasadena Civic Auditorium, turned out to be a lackluster affair--at least for the first half. After that, Brahms' Second Symphony, in a well-limned, carefully balanced and musically unified reading, saved the night.
