A single monumental work fills this edition of Carolina Live.  It's Johann Sebastian Bach's Mass in B-minor, which gave new form to the vocal music that Bach had composed throughout his career.  The performance is by the Charleston Symphony Orchestra, the Taylor Festival Choir and the College of Charleston Madrigal Singers, so join us for this special concert.

Conductor Edvard Tchivzhel and the Greenville Symphony Orchestra focus on Ludwig van Beethoven in the concert featured on this program.  From the great composer comes his Egmont Overture, the Piano Concerto No. 5 with guest artist Dmitri Levkovich, and the always-stirring Symphony No. 5 in c-minor.  The concert's title is Beethoven the Great, and the orchestra does a great job of playing the master's music!

There's a wonderful combination of chamber charm and symphonic power on this edition of Carolina Live.  The Tesla Quartet provides a concert from their time as resident quartet with the Western Piedmont Symphony, with pieces by Mozart, Sibelius and Kevin Puts.  Then the capper on the program is the entire Pictures at an Exhibition by Modest Mussorgsky, with all the beauty and drama the work contains.  Join us for both kinds of musical magic on this program.

This program brings you two very different the first, Johannes Brahms' A German Requiem is performed in stirring fashion by Charlotte-based choral group Vox and The Firebird Sinfonia.  The second concert's highlights are supplied by the Western Piedmont Symphony, with two impressive works by Antonio Vivaldi and favorites by Scott Joplin and Ottorino Respighi.  It's a Carolina Live with great variety, so be sure to listen.

Enjoy music from two concerts by the Greenville Symphony on this Carolina Live.  The Chamber Orchestra offers a fascinating group of selections from the concert Chamber Extravaganza—music by Korngold, Nino Rota and Kurt Weill.  Then the Symphony plays two highlights from an Oktoberfest concert—Carl Maria von Weber's Symphony No. 1 in C and Richard Strauss' Le Bourgeois Gentilhomme.  There's wonderful variety to be found in this Carolina Live, so make sure to join us.

The title of the concert featured here is Favorite Love Songs, and the special guests of the Greensboro Symphony Orchestra have created a long-running musical love story... Jaime Laredo and Sharon Robinson are a husband-wife team who are known worldwide as soloists, a duo, and as part of a famous trio.  The concert features Vivaldi's Concerto for Two Violins and Cello, Chris Brubeck's Pas De Deux-Concerto for Violin, Cello, and Orchestra and Sergei Prokofiev's  Romeo and Juliet Suite.  Enjoy the "love songs" with us!

Carolina Live features music from two concerts by the South Carolina Philharmonic Orchestra.  Morihiko Nakahara conducts American Originals with music by Leonard Bernstein and Aaron Copland, and he's also at the podium with selections by Mozart and Beethoven from a concert in the Beethoven and Blue Jeans series.  Two strong musical events, and you get to sample both on this edition of Carolina Live.

Three composers and three pianists are featured in a concert that leads off this edition of Carolina Live.  It's titled The 3 B's, and as you would expect that refers to Brahms, Beethoven and Bach, each of whom is represented by a distinctive work, including one featuring three pianists at once.  This program also features some out-of-the-ordinary chamber work by the Tesla Quartet, with Three Rags by William Bolcom and music by two other gifted composers.  Join us for this unique edition of Carolina Live.

This program featuring the Western Piedmont Symphony begins with a world premiere: Winston-Salem-based composer Dan Locklair's Symphony No. 2 was premiered by the orchestra, and you'll hear that.  Then we hear a different concert by the group—it's titled Homecoming, and among the treats you'll hear are Robert Schumann's Violin Concerto in A-minor and Alexander Borodin's Symphony No. 2 in B-minor.  Fine music from a fine orchestra, so please join us.
