“For never was a story of more woe…” No rendition of Shakespeare’s iconic tragedy captures the passion and depth of feeling—or the chasm between wide-eyed love and searing hate—more powerfully than Prokofiev’s. Korngold practically invented the lush, Hollywood sound we know and love, and his Cello Concerto began as on-screen music for the 1946 film Deception. Houston Symphony Principal Cellist Brinton Averil Smith draws out every ounce of its tender, opulent warmth, and shares music of French composer Darius Milhaud.
