  • Up-and-coming British pianist Benjamin Grosvenor will perform Beethoven’s Piano Concerto No. 2. “Mr. Grosvenor makes you sigh with joy…. A temperament rare in yesteryear, let alone now.” – David Allen, The New York Times
  • Written during World War II, British composer Vaughan Williams’ Symphony No. 5 is his most popular symphony, suffused with a mood of calm, and filled with lush, pastoral music.
  • According to music historian Larry Rothe, “The peace of [Vaughan Willliams’] Fifth is hard-won, and it is uttered in the voice of experience, not naïveté.”
