A Global Tour with Cape Ann Symphony

Grisha Goryachev is renowned for his extraordinary musical sensitivity and technical virtuosity.

Thrill to music from Austria, Spain and Japan. Beethoven’s Fifth is possibly the world’s most well known symphony with its powerful four note opening. Rodrigo’s immediately recognizable and popular Concierto de Aranjuez put Rodrigo on the map as one of the world’s great 20th Century composers. It also helped make the classical guitar the respectable solo instrument it has become.

Koto’s Stormy and Calm Seas a new piece commissioned by the Cape Ann Symphony is a musical depiction of the ocean during a storm and the calm that comes afterwards.
