Soloist to ‘toot’ the greats

    (NWPR-OH) – Works of three very different composers, each a visionary exhibiting Romantic Era influences but refracted through their distinct personalities, the Dayton Philharmonic Orchestra continues with its classical concerts titled, “Titanic Brahms, Vibrant Liebermann” on Friday, January 7 and Saturday the 8th, 2011, with both performances at 8:00 pm at the Schuster Center.

     In the Prelude and Liebestod from Tristan und Isolde, Richard Wagner joins the beginning and end of his greatest opera, a story of forbidden love and unimaginable passion.  Lowell Liebermann’s Concerto for Trumpet and Orchestra, featuring soloist Ryan Anthony, balances lyricism, wit and a sense of adventure. The concerts will conclude with Johannes Brahms’s Symphony No. 4, his final symphony and the one many consider his greatest.

     Virtuoso trumpeter Anthony is as a member of the Canadian Brass, where he is becoming one of the most sought-after trumpeters in America, prompting the legendary Doc Severinsen to note: “He will be missed with Canadian Brass, but I feel certain he will have a great and distinguished career as a soloist.” He is a graduate of the Cleveland Institute of Music, where he was a recipient of school’s Alumni Achievement Award

     Currently serving the Dallas Symphony Orchestra as Principal Trumpet,  Anthony’s artistry has been heard in many of the world’s leading venues, among them Carnegie Hall, Lincoln Center for the Performing Arts’ Avery Fisher Hall, John F. Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts, United States Department of State and the Pan-Pacific International Music Festival in Sydney, Australia.

     Sponsored by Miami Valley and Good Samaritan Hospitals, tickets for this classical series are available by calling 888.228.3630 or For much more information on Ryan Anthony, who is the 2010-2011 season Erma R. and Hampden W. Catterton Endowed Guest Artist, see
