Premieres and Variations

koger-100The South Carolina Philharmonic plays a couple of notable twentieth-century variations by Benjamin Britten and Zoltan Kodaly, two very recent works by American composers (including the world premiere performance of John Fitz Rogers' Double Concerto for two pianos and orchestra); and from a 2009 'Chamber Innovista' concert at the University of South Carolina School of Music, a trio for flute, viola and guitar, by a contemporary of Beethoven named Wenzeslaus Matiegka.
