Greensboro Symphony: Weber, Beethoven & Rachmaninoff

cl-140810-300

The Greensboro Symphony and its distinguished music director welcome a solo clarinetist for a showpiece by Weber, as well as a chamber music trio for an innovative concerto by Beethoven in a concert from their 2014 season. They wrap up the program with Rachmaninoff’s most popular symphony. Then we’re off in the “way back” machine to the North Carolina Triad in 1996 for an encore performance to mark the passing of the poet Maya Angelou. She appears in the role of narrator for the World Premiere of Since Dawn (A Tone Poem for Narrator, Chorus and Orchestra based on Maya Angelou's "On the Pulse of Morning") by the renowned Winston-Salem-based composer Dan Locklair.
