ABOUT THIS CONCERT
The most famous love story ever written is told through the universal language of music in Prokofiev’s impassioned and romantic Romeo and Juliet. Dorothy Chang’s Northern Star points the way to a world of evocative soundscapes and kaleidoscopic color. And, Principal Cellist Brinton Averil Smith performs one of classical music’s most popular cello concertos—Dvořák poured his soul into it, and it includes some of his most heart-achingly beautiful music.
“Why in the world didn’t I know one could write a cello concerto like this? If I’d only known, I’d have done it long ago!” –Composer Johannes Brahms’s reaction to Dvořák’s Cello Concerto
