Salisbury Symphony offers bold, beautiful music

By Salisbury-Rowan Symphony Society news service

The Salisbury Symphony’s second concert of its 2014-15 season offers classical music that is both bold and beautiful! Beginning with Mozart’s Overture to Don Giovanni, followed by Schumann’s Symphony No. 4 in D Minor, the concert ends with the monumental Piano Concerto #1 by Brahms. The concert, “Minor Details, Major Decisions,” holds the answer to the puzzle question “What?” What could be the reason for this title? And, the answer is found in the music! Those who arrive by 7 p.m. will be treated to a conversation with David Hagy, music director, about the music and the composers featured that evening.

The concert is scheduled for Saturday, Nov.22 at 7:30 p.m. in Keppel Auditorium at Catawba College. Dmitri Shteinberg, pianist, is the soloist. Concertgoers will remember him when he performed with the Salisbury Symphony two years ago; his talent is impressive. A native of Moscow, Dmitri Shteinberg continues to perform all over the world, winning competitions and touching audiences. Called “protean and refined” by the New York Times, Shteinberg has recorded for the Israeli “Voice of Music” radio station, the NPR and the Bavarian Radio, among others. Besides solo and chamber music performances, Shteinberg frequently appears with concert-lectures; he also plays harpsichord and period pianos. His interest in new music has led to world premieres and numerous commissions.

The Brahms concerto is so important and pianist Shteinberg is so talented, it was clear that the Steinway piano in Keppel Auditorium needed to be up to the task. Both Catawba College and an anonymous donor donated the funds needed to completely overhaul the Steinway. There is nothing to prevent this performance from being one of the best ever performed!

Concert tickets may be purchased in advance at a Symphony ticket outlets — Rowan County Visitors Center or Sidewalk Deli in Salisbury; Crescent Pharmacy (Rockwell); Pinocchio’s (Spencer); or Corriher Springs Florist (China Grove) – at www.salisburysymphony.org — or by calling the Symphony office at 704-637-4314. Bill and Nancy Stanback are concert sponsors.

“Balcony For A Buck” will be offered at this concert, and tickets may be purchased at the box office once it opens an hour before the performance.
