Eastern Music Festival Concert Features Pianist
The Eastern Music Festival's Lincoln Financial Festival Orchestra Series continues Saturday, July 18, at 8 p.m., with a concert featuring the technically superb pianist Horacio Gutirrez in a special performance of Beethoven's "Piano Concerto No. 4 in G major, op.58."
Led by Maestro Gerard Schwarz, the Eastern Festival Orchestra will also present works by Beethoven and Janček. A rare treat, guest conductor Bright Sheng will conduct his own "Tibetan Swing."
With a career of over three decades, Cuban pianist Horacio Gutirrez has earned a critically acclaimed reputation, and has been praised as "one of the greatest pianists of our time."
A free pre-concert conversation with musicologist Dr. Greg Carroll, called Musically Speaking, explores the history of the evening's composers and repertoire in a casual, conversational atmosphere. Musically Speaking begins a 7pm in the Moon Room of Dana Auditorium and is free and open to the public. There is also a pre-concert prelude beginning at 7:15pm in front of Dana Auditorium to welcome concertgoers.
The concert will take place in Dana Auditorium at Guilford College (5800 West Friendly Ave., Greensboro).
