FRI 13 MAY: FANTASTIQUE

Friday, May 13, 2022 11:00am

Event Description

A thrilling season finale! Schoenberg’s Automation is a double concerto for cello and pre-recorded cello, plus electronics and orchestra, and we close with the wild and virtuosic Symphonie fantastique.

Captivating his audiences with a “primer of technical feats” (New York Sun), and his warm, lush tone “that might be described as something akin to rich old wood” (Boston Musical Intelligencer), YVES DHAR has earned a worldwide reputation as a dynamic cellist who blends an immaculate command of the instrument with deep musical understanding to express his fresh and elegant interpretations.
