One award-winning, brilliantly reviewed guest artist makes for a satisfying musical afternoon; but on Sunday, Nov. 3 at 3 p.m. in the Porter Center at Brevard College, the Brevard Philharmonic will present two acclaimed violinists.
In its second concert of the season, Danbi Um and Paul Huang are returning to Brevard with their remarkable virtuosity and artistry.
Their debut Brevard performance was two years ago at the sold-out House Concert fundraiser for the Philharmonic.
The concert opens with the orchestra playing Glinka’s rollicking overture to the opera, Ruslan and Ludmilla. The piece is one of the best known orchestral showpieces and represents the use of the whole tone scale for the first time in Russian music.
Ms. Um and Mr. Huang take the stage next with Moszkowski’s Suite in G minor, Op. 71 for piano and two violins.
After intermission, the full Philharmonic returns with Tchaikovsky’s Romeo and Juliet Fantasy-Overture.
For the finale of the afternoon, Huang and Um will join the orchestra for the evocative, rhythmic and virtuosic Navarra, Op. 33, named for the Spanish birthplace of its composer, Pedro De Sarasate.
Tickets are on sale now for $25 to $35 per concert. Both season tickets and individual tickets are available by calling 828-884-4221 or by using our Pick Your Seat option at brevardphilharmonic.org.
