Pre-concert Discussion starting at 6:30pm
Ralph Vaughan Williams Five Variants on “Dives and Lazarus” (1939)
Zoltán Kodály Dances of Galánta (1933)
Dmitry Shostakovich Cello Concerto No. 1 in E-flat Major, Op. 107 (1959)
Our principal cellist, Dr. Robert Tueller, steps out of the orchestra to perform the stirring Cello Concerto No. 1 by Dmitry Shostakovich. The lush string music of Vaughan Williams provides a sonorous prelude to Kodály’s eclectic suite of flashy Galánta dances. Enjoy the combination of three bold works from the 20th century.
