Eastern Music Festival and Cecile Licad

licad-100On this edition of Carolina Live, we visit the Eastern Music Festival and hear the sensational Filipina pianist Cecile Licad roar through Rachmaninoff’s Piano Concerto No. 3. Gerard Schwarz is on the podium for a program that includes Shostakovich’s unlikely Symphony No. 9, brighter in mood than his 7th or 8th, after Shostakovich dropped his original plans for the symphony as a celebration of Russian victory over the Nazis.
