The Houston Symphony’s own Charles Seo shines in Haydn’s first cello concerto.
Unearthed in 1961 after vanishing for nearly two centuries, the elegance of this sunny concerto is ideal for the outdoor setting of Miller Theater.
The same could be said for the inspired optimism of Dvořák’s Eight Symphony, a work that delights audiences with its buoyancy and pastural serenity. This concert also features a rare performance of Samuel Coleridge-Taylor’s deeply passionate Ballade in A minor, all under the baton of special guest conductor Dionysis Grammenos.
