Yo-Yo Ma to Perform DVORAK with Pacific Symphony Orchestra, 5/5Yo-Yo Ma to Perform DVORAK with Pacific Symphony Orchestra, 5/5
by BWW News Desk - Apr 15, 2015

Orange County, Calif.—April 14, 2015—Widely considered the greatest cellist alive today, Yo-Yo Ma makes a special Orange County appearance to honor Music Director Carl St.Clair's 25th anniversary season with Pacific Symphony. One of classical music's true superstars and an ambassador for the art form, Ma performs the passionate and ground-breaking Cello Concerto by Antonin Dvo?ák. Filled with dramatic flair and romantic singing lines, the concerto captures the human quality of the solo instrument like none before it. Led by St.Clair, the Symphony shines with another virtuosic masterpiece as Modest Mussorgsky's “Pictures at an Exhibition” opens the concert. Arranged for orchestra by Maurice Ravel, the original 15-part piano work was written both to create a musical evocation of a series of paintings and to memorialize the artist who painted them, Viktor Hartmann. This special concert takes place on Tuesday, May 5, at 8 p.m. in the Renée and Henry Segerstrom Concert Hall. A limited number of tickets are available starting at $200. For more information or to purchase tickets, call (714) 755-5799 or visit PacificSymphony.org. (more...)
