Music Director Dmitry Sitkovetsky Plays with the Greensboro Symphony Orchestra for Two Performances
In April of 2002 a renowned Russian violinist was invited to perform Beethoven’s Concerto for Violin with the Greensboro Symphony. That performance left a lasting impression. The chemistry between soloist and orchestra was just right, and the following year the guest artist was appointed Music Director of the Greensboro Symphony Orchestra. It’s a position Dmitry Sitkovetsky holds to this day, and this week he joins the orchestra once more as soloist performing Beethoven’s amazing concerto. Dmitry spoke with David Ford by phone from his studio in London, and he began by asking him about his musical use of time in his 2004 recording of the Beethoven Concerto with Sir Neville Marriner and the Academy of St, Martin in the Fields.
On Thursday night, January 23rd at 7:30pm in War Memorial Auditorium, and Saturday at 8:00pm in Dana Auditorium, he’ll join the orchestra as soloist in a performance of Beethoven’s Violin Concerto op.61. Also on the program titled Diamonds in the Rough, the monumental Symphony #5 by Jean Sibelius.
