By the Washington Post’s lights, Sergey Antonov is “destined for cello superstardom.” The critically acclaimed musician took home a gold medal in the 2007 International Tchaikovsky Competition, won the Russian Performing Arts Foundation’s Golden Talent Award in 2008, and the National Teacher of the Year Award of Russia in 2014.
- Shostakovich—Cello Sonata: The love affair between Shostakovich and a student happened swiftly—and so did his subsequent divorce. In the aftermath, the Sonata for Cello and Piano in D-Minor emerged from a burst of emotional energy. Over the course of several weeks, the Soviet composer channeled his feelings into staccato chords, mournful melodies, and ecstatic scales.
- Smetana—Piano Trio: A single cello’s strains fill the stage, moving unhurriedly with a touch of melancholy. Soon they join the swelling orchestra, and a piano’s assured scales blend with the cello’s melodies, creating a musical marriage that winds through three movements with bursts of rhythm and drama.
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.
