Greensboro Symphony Masterworks: Heroes and Villains
cl-150301-wdav
This program by the Greensboro Symphony Orchestra takes its theme from the devolution shared by the characters which open and close the concert. The title character from Britten’s opera Peter Grimes descends into madness; from his story we’ll hear four famous instrumental passages depicting the sea to start the program. Beethoven’s Third Symphony was originally intended to honor Napoleon, but his transformation into yet another power-mad monarch caused the composer to change the dedication; that symphony closes the program. In between the virtuoso Igor Kamenz performs Tchaikovsky’s beloved first piano concerto, and treats us to an encore by Schumann.
