PERFORMERS Nashville Symphony Christopher Seaman, conductor Benjamin Grosvenor, piano PROGRAM Panufnik - Sinfonia Sacra Beethoven - Piano Concerto No. 2 Vaughan-Williams - Symphony No. 5 Up-and-coming British pianist Benjamin Grosvenor will perform Beethovens Piano Concerto No. 2. Mr. Grosvenor makes you sigh with joy... A temperament rare in yesteryear, let alone now. - David Allen, The New York Times. Written during World War II, British composer Vaughan Williams Symphony No. 5 is his most popular symphony, suffused with a mood of calm, and filled with lush, pastoral music. According to music historian Larry Rothe, The peace of [Vaughan Willliams] Fifth is hard-won, and it is uttered in the voice of experience, not naïveté.
