Symphonic Fire

  • Mello Center for the Performing Arts 250 East Beach Street Watsonville, CA, 95076 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.
