Dvorak’s Cello Concerto

October 9, 2022 @ 3:00 pm - 5:00 pm

Lucas Richman, conductor
Ifetayo Ali-Landing, cello

Dvorák’s “Cello Concerto” is brought to life by a rising young star at the opening concert of the BSO’s 127th season.

What’s Interesting About This Concert

  • Cellist Ifetayo Ali-Landing came to fame via her own TedX Talk and NPR Tiny Desk Concert after winning the 2017 Sphinx Competition’s Junior Division
  • Composer Nancy Galbraith’s use of percussion in her piece “Fantasy for Orchestra” from 2003 is explosive, persistent, and highly energetic
  • In addition to being one of the most important composers of the 20th century, Hungarian Béla Bartok was a pioneer in documenting his country’s folk music, which infuses his “Dance Suite”

The Program

  • Nancy Galbraith | Fantasy for Orchestra
  • Béla Bartok | Dance Suite
  • Antonín Dvorák  | Cello Concerto in B minor, Op. 141
    • Ifetayo Ali-Landing, cello
