Dvořák Cello Concerto
Kodály Dances of Galánta
Bartók Suite from The Wooden Prince
Music from three Eastern Europeans gives this program a delightfully colorful sound palette. Dvořák began his enticing concerto while living in New York, but upon returning to Europe, he learned that a woman he’d once loved had died. His youthful song to her permeates this work. Gramophone called Monsieur Capuçon’s recording of it “magical.” Kodály’s Dances of Galánta is raucous yet vibrant, and Bartók’s ballet suite in one act features a huge orchestra playing music with dark and totally dramatic undertones.
Meet Gautier Capuçon at a CD signing in the Symphony Store following the May 30, 31, and June 2 concerts.
“Gautier Capuçon plays the cello with the control and wisdom of a much older musician. The lightness of his touch and the consistent clarity of his bow strokes are quite admirable in themselves, but when combined with an uncanny sweetness of tone in the higher registers they are breathtaking.” —GRAMOPHONE
