Symphonic Fire

  • Santa Cruz Civic Auditorium 307 Church Street Santa Cruz, CA, 95060 United States (map)

Dvořák's monumental cello concerto will feature our very own internationally renowned principal cellist, Jonah Kim.  Dvorák wrote the cello concerto while living in New York. It was there that both the B minor Cello Concerto and the New World Symphony were written within a few years. 

Rachmaninoff's final symphonic masterpiece, his fiery Symphonic Dances, follows. In it, Rachmaninoff reflects his nostalgia for the Russia he had known.
