Fauré - Elegy
Osvaldo Golijov - Azul (West Coast premiere)
Beethoven - Symphony No. 7 in A major
Feel the electricity when Yo-Yo Ma performs Osvaldo Golijov’s Azul, a work inspired by the open air and the deep blue of the night sky. In writing for the celebrated cellist, Golijov—one of the premier composers of our time—marries the technology of the 21st-century and Baroque sensibility with astonishing results. Don’t miss Yo-Yo Ma in the Golijov work written for him!
Please join us in the theater one hour before the concert for Concert Preludes, FREE to all ticket holders. Jeffrey Kahane and friends will share fascinating stories and humorous anecdotes about the music you will hear that night. The Preludes may feature a live music performance to complement the music program.
