Charleston Symphony Orchestra Masterworks: Brahms

The Charleston Symphony Orchestra, conducted by Ken Lam and joined by guest cellist Julian Schwarz for one special work, takes the stage with pieces by Antonín Dvorák, Édouard Lalo, and Johannes Brahms. Performing since the age of 11, Schwarz has made big waves with his solo career, winning the 2013 Schoenfeld International String Competition and the 2016 Boulder International Chamber Music Competition’s “The Art of Duoi.” During this concert, he uses a cello crafted in Naples in 1743 by one of the finest instrument makers, Gennaro Gagliano. Opening with Dvorák‘s ballad, The Noonday Witch, this concert is the first Masterworks show of the CSO season and includes a pre-concert conversation with Lam, the CSO‘s music director, or his assistants from 6:30 to 7:15 p.m. Gaillard Center, 95 Calhoun St. Friday & Saturday, 7:30-9:30pm. $105-$27.
