Coming Up on Carolina Live

Winston-Salem Symphony: Enigma Variations

February 17, 2019

The title of our featured concert is Enigma Variations, but the quality of the music you’ll hear during this edition of Carolina Live is quite clear and straightforward. It begins with Wagner’s stately Prelude to Die Meistersinger von Nurnberg, moves to a distinctive Concerto for Two Cellos and Orchestra by contemporary composer David Ott, and ends with the work that provides the concert’s title—Edward Elgar’s Enigma Variations. A diverse and interesting selection from the always-creative Robert Moody and the Winston-Salem Symphony.

South Carolina Philharmonic: Masterworks 5

February 24, 2019

The site of the concert featured in this Carolina Live program is Columbia, where music director and conductor Morihiko Nakahara leads the South Carolina Philharmonic Orchestra in a rich group of compositions. There’s Mozart’s Overture to La clemenza di Tito, then a masterwork of Frederic Chopin, his Piano Concerto No. 1 in e-minor with guest pianist David Hou. To wrap things up in grand fashion the orchestra plays Johannes Brahms’s Symphony No. 1 in c-minor, so be sure to join us for this exciting evening of music.
