Edvard TchivzhelThis edition of Carolina Live is filled by just two works, but each is a major one. The groundbreaking Symphonie Fantastique by Hector Berlioz is performed with appropriate grace and power by the Greenville Symphony Orchestra, led by conductor Edvard Tchivzhel. Then the Rutherford Chamber Consort plays a significant chamber work by Franz Schubert, his String Quintet in C Major. Two selections, filling almost two hours of musical pleasure for you…

Dmitry SitkovetskyThere’s a spectacular program of violin music on this edition of Carolina Live.  Four distinctly talented musicians fill the spotlight in a concert by the Greensboro Symphony titled Violin Virtuosos.  Dmitry Sitkovetsky, the orchestra’s Music Director and conductor, is also an internationally-acclaimed violinist, and he’s joined by Mayuko Kamio, Risa Hokamura and Majorie Bagley in Vivaldi’s Concerto for Four Violins and Cello and Pablo de Sarasate’s Navarra Fantasy for Four Violins and Orchestra.  There’s also music by Saint-Saens and Lalo, so make sure you hear the program.

Dmitry SitkovetskyThere’s music from two exciting concerts by two terrific orchestras on this edition of the program.  The Greensboro Symphony offers Cinema Music, with selections from South Pacific, Schindler’s List, The Magnificent Seven, Psycho and much more.  Then the South Carolina Philharmonic dazzles with Samuel Barber’s Overture to The School for Scandal, George Gershwin’s Piano Concerto in F with guest pianist Gilles Vonsattel and The Mestizo Waltz by Gabriela Lena Frank.  It’s a truly dazzling collection of music from two fine orchestras!

Beethoven's "Pastoral" Symphony

itamar-zorman-300Itimar Zorman joins the Brevard Music Center Orchestra in a concert featuring Berg's final composition and Beethoven's idyllic Sixth Symphony.




Garrick OhlssohnIn a rebroadcast of the season 2017 opener, the Brevard Music Center welcomes back pianist Garrick Ohlssohn to play Brahms’ massive Concerto No. 1 with the Brevard Music Center Orchestra and Artistic Director Keith Lockhart conducting.




Morihiko NakaharaSeveral of the greatest figures in Russian musical history provide the selections featured in this edition of Carolina Live.  The concert’s title is The Rite of Spring, and that groundbreaking work by Igor Stravinsky is performed by the South Carolina Philharmonic, which also presents a Suite from Cinderella by Sergei Prokofiev. But first, the music begins with Modest Mussorgsky’s Night on Bald Mountain, in a re-orchestration by Nikolai Rimsky-Korsakov played by the South Carolina Philharmonic Youth Orchestra. It’s powerful music for any season on Carolina Live.


Timmothy RedmondTimothy Redmond is Music Director and conductor of the Winston-Salem Symphony, but this program takes you back to his first time leading the orchestra.  As special guest he conducted Mozart’s Symphony No. 29 in A, Samuel Barber’s Violin Concerto and Jean Sibelius’ Symphony No. 1 in e-minor.  It was seen as an “audition” concert, and as the permanent position proves, Maestro Redmond passed with flying colors!


Suzanna Pavlovsky by Dimitry PavlovskyOn this program you can enjoy two concerts from two South Carolina chamber orchestras. The Greenville Symphony Chamber Orchestra has Strings Galore, with a sonata by Rossini, the Concerto for Piano and Solo Trumpet by Shostakovich and Tchaikovsky’s lovely Serenade in C. Then the Palmetto Chamber Orchestra has a concert titled Runs, Trills and Flirts, featuring Mozart’s Symphony No. 29 in A, the Duetto for Cello and Bass by Rossini, Joaquin Malats’ Serenata Espanola and the beautiful Theme from Schindler’s List by John Williams. Two concerts, two orchestras…a double treat for you.

Morihiko NakaharaThe site of the concert featured in this Carolina Live program is Columbia, SC, where music director and conductor Morihiko Nakahara leads the South Carolina Philharmonic Orchestra in a rich group of compositions. We'll hear 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. And 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.
