Symphony of the Vines is an orchestra made up of great musicians who expertly step into the limelight to perform as soloists. This program features all of our excellent musicians, and we are pleased to welcome back the Czech-American Horn duo Steven Gross and Jiri Havlik. Of the duo, Fanfar Magazine declared, "Gross and Havlik toss off the solo parts as if they were all child’s play. Because of the horn’s enormous range—over four octaves (more than any other wind instrument)—we find the soloists indulging in extremes of register, sometimes simultaneously … He and Havlik dovetail excellently, with some acrobatic writing and a fair amount of rococo wit to be heard."
