The Program

Spring arrives in the Greensboro Symphony’s latest program, and with it comes an extra dose of sonic sunshine courtesy of International Tchaikovsky Competition–winner Sergey Antonov. Of Antonov, Sweden’s Katrineholm Kuriren says, “There are few musicians this talented, with this esoteric ability, being able to touch the listener so deeply and put them in another dimension.”

  • Smetana—Bartered Bride Overture: Like Mozart’s overture to The Marriage of Figaro, the delightful overture to this Czech composer’s comic opera has a spiritual giddiness and a marked diversion from the opera’s later themes. Still, Czech music specialist John Tyrrell calls the piece “a tour de force of the genre, wonderfully spirited and wonderfully crafted.”
  • Dvořák—Cello Concerto: After reading through Dvořák’s concerto, a friend of his remarked “Why on earth didn’t I know that one could write a cello concerto like this? Had I known, I would have written one long ago.” That friend’s name? Brahms.
  • Schumann—Symphony No. 1 Spring: Schumann’s first completed symphony closes with a merry finale that mixes playfully capering strings and triumphant fanfares—a fittingly cheerful tone, since the composer wrote it for his beloved wife Clara.

Greensboro Symphony Orchestra

The Greensboro Symphony’s mighty oak has grown from the most acornic of beginnings—its story started in the 1920s with a group of musicians at Woman's College. Over the years, the symphony has grown into a cultural cornerstone of the community, with community-outreach programs, youth-involvement events, a secret volcano headquarters, and an endowment fund.
