Winston-Salem Symphony: "Butterfly Lovers"

butterfly lovers 150

Insects are the theme of the first part of this concert from the Winston-Salem Symphony’s 2011-2012 season. Hear well-known musical depictions of the insect world from Vaughan Williams and Rimsky-Korsakov and a fluttery Chinese violin concerto redolent with atmosphere. Then the focus shifts to Central Europe for one of the Slavonic Dances by Dvořák, and his all too often overlooked Symphony No. 7.
