Exhilarating. Spectacular. Epic.
Conductor Umberto Clerici
Soloist Daniel Müller-Schott, cello
Elgar Cello Concerto in E minor
Mahler Symphony No.1 in D (Titan)
Conductor Umberto Clerici wowed audiences when he appeared with us in 2021 and we can’t wait to see how he leads our musicians in two of the most powerful orchestral works. Elgar’s Cello Concerto is one of the greatest cello compositions of all time, with a level of passion and intensity that makes it simply timeless. It will be performed by cellist Daniel Müller-Schott, described as “a fearless player with technique to burn” by The New York Times.
One dramatic masterpiece is great, but two is even better! This concert also showcases Mahler’s Symphony No.1, one of the most jaw-dropping first symphonies ever composed. Mahler threw every musical idea he knew into this symphony: the sound of nature, military fanfares, folk songs, dances, and a truly hair-raising finale. Any performance of this work is guaranteed to leave you feeling exhilarated and moved.
