ProMusica's "Power Couple" - David Danzmayr and Vadim Gluzman

ProMusica Chamber Orchestra closed out the 2015-2016 season with two of classical music's greatest masterpieces...Prokofiev’s Violin Concerto No. 2 and Schubert’s Symphony No. 9, also known as simply, The Great.

Vadim Gluzman, ProMusica's Creative Partner and Principal Guest Artist, teamed with PMCO Music Director David Danzmayr in a riveting performance of the Prokofiev. If you attended ProMusica's concerts in December, you will certainly remember the electric performance by of Vivaldi's Four Seasonsby Vadim and ProMusica. This was also a don't-miss season finale!

In a conversation with PMCO Music Director David Danzmayr, we spoke about performing with Vadim Gluzman...AND what it takes to make the Prokofiev Violin Concerto No. 2 come alive.

If you missed it, here's a sneak peek of the Prokofiev Concerto with Vadim Gluzman.


The second half of the concert was given over to Schubert's symphonic masterpiece, the Symphony No. 9, often called The Great. David says it is something of a hybrid work...a blending of the Classical and Romantic periods it straddles.

Danzmayr says Schubert's Symphony No. 9 is a product of two musical worlds.

Here's the finale...


ProMusica's current season over, but they have much yet to come. This year's free Summer Music Series takes place in a new venue August 11th, 13th and 14th on the beautiful grounds of the Topiary Park, adjacent to the Main Columbus Metropolitan Library downtown. ProMusica's 2016-2017 season is already planned, with exciting music and guest artists you won't want to miss. You can also hear the 2015-2016 season on Classical 101 when ProMusica's broadcast season begins the first Sunday in November.
