Violin prodigy plays storied Stradivarius for Florida Orchestra concerts

Violin prodigy Caroline Goulding will join the Florida Orchestra this weekend for performances of Korngold's Violin Concerto in D major, Op. 35. Goulding has played with top orchestras since age 13 and was nominated for a Grammy with her debut album. If you go, pay attention to her instrument, which is the "General Kyd" Stradivarius (circa 1720) that Itzhak Perlman played for most of his early recordings. Erich Wolfgang Korngold's concerto is a crowd-pleaser, played regularly by all of the most popular violinists. He wrote it after a seven-year stint of composing film music, and the influence that Hollywood had on this Austrian composer is certainly clear in the work. Also on the program is Sergei Prokofiev's Symphony No. 5, Op. 100 and a dance suite from Thomas Ades' opera Powder Her Face. Principal guest conductor Stuart Malina conducts. Performances are at 11 a.m. Friday and 8 p.m. Saturday at the Mahaffey Theater in St. Petersburg and 7:30 p.m. Sunday at Ruth Eckerd Hall in Clearwater. $15-$45. (727) 892-3337 or toll-free 1-800-662-7286.
