April 9, 2013 SO. FLORIDA SYMPHONY ORCHESTRA Crest Theatre The South Florida Symphony presents “From Darkness Comes the Light.” Music selections include Elgar: Cello Concerto featuring ZUILL BAILEY, cello; Brahams: Symphony No. 2; Schubert: Rosamunde Overture. ZUILL BAILEY returns to the Delray stage to perform the famed and intimate Cello Concerto of Elgar. The Kansas City Star hailed Bailey as “…one of the most exciting cellists to come along in years.” Brahm’s Second “seemed to bloom as spontaneously as a spring blossom in a forest glade.” Its genial, outgoing character sets it apart from Brahm’s three other symphonies. This is the one, understandably, regarded as his “pastoral” symphony, and it is surely the most directly endearing of the four. The Rosamunde Overture is one of Schubert’s finest instrumental works and opens this season’s final Master Concerts. (Guest Production) Tuesday, 7:30 p.m.; tickets $35/$45/$55; $55 ticket includes post- performance reception. For more, visit SouthFloridaSymphony.org.
