8:00pm – 10:00pm
Sebastian Lang-Lessing, conductor
Lynn Harrell, cello
Peasants merrily gathering, a thunderstorm, a babbling brook: Beethoven creates a radiant soundscape in his “Pastorale” Symphony, interpreted by your San Antonio Symphony, under the baton of Maestro Sebastian Lang-Lessing. Weber’s dramatic Overture to Der Freischütz, the most important German opera of the Romantic era, opens the program and cellist Lynn Harrell performs the beautiful and shifty Cello Concerto No. 1 in E-flat Major, Op. 107, by Dimitri Shostakovich. This highly virtuosic showstopper was originally written for Mistislav Rostropovich.
Lynn Harrell’s Appearance Is Generously Sponsored By The Russell Hill Rogers Fund For The Arts, Celebrated Artist Series.
