Tchaikovsky & Copland
Schermerhorn Symphony Center
1 Symphony Pl | Get Directions
Enjoy a night of cello music when dynamic soloist Johannes Moser features the instrument in two very different settings: Tchaikovsky’s Variations on a Rococo Theme is a tribute to the elegance and refinement of Mozart, featuring sparkling interplay between soloist and orchestra, while contemporary Mexican composer Enrico Chapela’s innovative Magnetar utilizes electric cello and guitar pedals to create a truly one-of-a-kind experience, equally influenced by classical and rock.
The evening closes with the work that helped launch Aaron Copland's career – a modern American classic and a showcase for the incredible sound of the Schermerhorn's Martin Foundation Concert Organ. Come early and learn more about the music at Classical Conversations with Maestro Giancarlo Guerrero, taking place one hour before the concert in the Balcony Lobby.
