A Series of Concerts featuring music for the cello by Johann Sebastian Bach.
The Six Unaccompanied Suites and Three Sonatas were composed during J.S. Bach’s middle period. Largely ignored for years after Bach’s death, these works have become the foundation of the cello repertoire- the summation of cello technique and expression. This is a great way to hear what really constitutes “the Bible” to the world of cello and an inspiration to all who love music.
Mozart’s final three symphonies make up this wonderful program: No. 39, No. 40 and No. 41, “Jupiter.” Says Llewellyn, “Mozart wrote all three of these works inside of six weeks for no apparent reason.
With the four horns out front, audiences will have an exciting introduction to the orchestra’s new Principal French horn, Brian Blanchard.
North Carolina Symphony Music Director Grant Llewellyn brings the work of three great composers together in a concert that highlights a great work by each of them. “Haydn, Mozart and Beethoven made music together, fed off of each other, admired each other,” says Llewellyn.
