PERFORMERS
Nashville Symphony | Christopher Seaman
, conductor | Benjamin Grosvenor, piano

British pianist Benjamin Grosvenor joins your Nashville Symphony for Beethoven’s Piano Concerto No. 2. This early triumph shows Beethoven moving past the influence of Mozart and forging his own original, dramatic flair. "Grosvenor delivers virtuosity beyond his years," says the L.A. Times. "If you haven't heard him, hear him now." Written during World War II, Vaughan Williams’ Symphony No. 5 is possibly the British composer's finest achievement, suffused with music of beauty and lushness, including quotes from beloved hymns.

It's the choral music event of the year: Verdi's Requiem, a masterful creation written for four soloists, double choir and orchestra, led by Maestro Giancarlo Guerrero. One of the great composers for opera, Verdi brought his command of musical drama to this deeply poignant work, which is full of gorgeous melodies and profound emotion, moving from fear and loss to transcendent joy.

This concert is part of Violins of Hope Nashville, a community-wide initiative highlighting a collection of restored violins played by Jews during the Holocaust.
