We are lucky to have a treasure like Greenwich Symphony

FI-Letter-to-the-EditorTo the Editor

After hearing Saturday night’s concert of the Greenwich Symphony, I felt I must write to remind your readers of this fantastic source of magnificent music we have here in our town.

I went primarily to hear Beethoven’s Seventh Symphony, one of my favorites. The program started with a symphony by Herbert Zabinski and I thought to myself that at least I’ll hear it with an open mind. But what a delight it turned out to be.

The first movement full of lively percussion won me immediately. The following lento movement was lovely and then the presto delivered more lively percussion. Next on the program was Prokofiev’s third piano concerto, which turned out to be an amazing tour de force.

The soloist, Frederic Chiu,  received four curtain calls and he deserved them for a boffo performance. And, of course, my Beethoven did not disappoint. Known as the dance symphony, it is simply beautiful.

What a glorious evening and it was over by 10:30. We in Greenwich are so lucky to have this treasure in our town.

The next concert coming up is on April 5 and 6, featuring Rachmaninoff’s Piano Concerto No. 2. Don’t miss it.
