Greenville Symphony Orchestra: The Greatest Revolutionary

Richard WagnerThe Greenville Symphony Orchestra observes the bicentennial of Richard Wagner with their first Masterworks program of the 2013-2014 season. Much of the operatic master’s instrumental music has enjoyed an additional existence in the concert hall, and the orchestra performs all the major works in this concert. It’s rounded out by a complete performance of the Beethoven symphony Wagner himself called “the apotheosis of the dance.” Then it’s over to Columbia for a USC School of Music concert featuring a superstar pianist playing a Rachmaninoff showpiece and a beloved Debussy melody.
