South Carolina Philharmonic: Masterworks 4 - Beethoven and Blue Jeans

cl-pegherThe South Carolina Philharmonic's occasional Beethoven and Blue Jeans concerts combine recognized masterworks by the iconic composer with more contemporary fare. This installment from January 2013 pairs his bucolic "Pastoral" Symphony with a concerto for percussion and orchestra by an acclaimed contemporary Scottish composer, James MacMillan, who based his work on the familiar Advent plainchant. The concerto includes talented percussionist Lisa Pegher in a featured role. Raising the curtain on the concert is a seminal work by the English composer Ralph Vaughan Williams.
