Marvelous Melodies: Dvořák’s Cello Concerto 

Conducted by Alain Trudel
June 13 - 15 7:30 PM

You are invited to attend a Prelude presentation before the Friday, June 14th and Saturday, June 15th evening concerts, starting at 6:45 PM in the Upper Circle Lobby (3rd Floor). This talk by musicologist D.T. Baker is a fantastic way to learn more about the pieces being performed in your concert.

Few works have more memorable melodies than Dvořák’s charming Cello Concerto, performed by young Canadian cellist Stéphane Tétreault. John McPherson has been the ESO’s Principal Trombone since 1980 and was also Composer-in-Residence in 2016-2017 when he wrote his moving exploration of grief, peace, and liberation. Robert Schumann’s romantic symphony glows with optimism, especially the stunning brass writing inspired by a visit to Cologne’s gothic cathedral on the Rhine.
