SC Philharmonic Presents Mozart Symphony No. 40
November 13 @ 7:30 pm
The South Carolina Philharmonic presents Mozart Symphony No. 40 November 13, 2021, at 7:30 PM at the Koger Center for the Arts. This second concert of the 2021/2022 Masterworks Series features a blockbuster lineup of Bach’s Brandenburg Concerto No. 6 in B-flat Major, Shostakovich’s Piano Concerto No. 1 in C minor, and Mozart’s Symphony No. 40 in G minor. The Bach spotlights SC Phil Principal Violist Eve Tang and Associate Principal Violist Scot Garrett. The Shostakovich features Principal Trumpet James Ackley, and internationally celebrated guest pianist Gilles Vonsattel. All concerts this season are presented in person and livestreamed.
Music Director Morihiko Nakahara is delighted to welcome internationally acclaimed pianist Gilles Vonsattel back to the SC Phil as a guest soloist for Shostakovich’s Piano Concerto No. 1 in C minor. Vonsattel is a Swiss-born American artist of extraordinary versatility and originality. He is the recipient of an Avery Fisher Career Grant, the Andrew Wolf Chamber Music Award and winner of the Naumburg and Geneva competitions. His New York solo recital was hailed by the New York Times as “tightly conceived and passionately performed…a study in intensity.”
The SC Philharmonic continues its season-long celebration of community and family with Principal Violist Eve Tang and Associate Principal Violist Scott Garret in J.S. Bach’s Brandenburg Concerto No. 6 in B-flat Major. Principal Trumpet James Ackley will also be featured alongside Vonsattel in Shostakovich’s Piano Concerto No. 1 in C minor.
