Greensboro Symphony Orchestra: Capriccio

cl-141109-250This edition of the program begins in Greensboro, North Carolina, where Dmitri Sitkovetsky has led the orchestra for more than a decade. He welcomes pianist Julia Zilberquist for a rhapsody by Russian composer Sergei Slonimsky. She also treats us to an encore by Marcello as arranged for keyboard by Bach. The concert is bookended by Brahms’ famous variations and Schumann’s sunniest symphony. Then it’s off to Columbia for a highlight from an October 2013 concert by the USC School of Music Symphony featuring Rimsky-Korsakov’s well-loved caprice.
