DSO channels spring with Brahms and Beethoven

Feb 20, 2017

The Delaware Symphony Orchestra welcomes an internationally known musician in its latest Classics Series Concert.

Pianist Alon Goldstein will be the guest soloist for the DSO’s concert at the Grand Opera House, with Beethoven’s Piano Concerto No. 1 will at the center of the show.

"It’s actually the beginning of a multiyear survey of all the major orchestral works by Beethoven. So we’re excited about it for a number of reasons," DSO Executive Director Alan Jordan said.

Beethoven isn’t the only musical giant whose work will be featured.

"We will end the program with arguably Brahms' most cheerful and sunny piece, his Symphony No. 2," Jordan said. 

"It’s a piece that’s really perfect for mid-February when people are starting get a antsy about planting seeds and pulling the golf clubs out."

The Classics Series Concert is Feb. 24 at the Grand Opera House in Wilmington.
