Event Description

Written for celebrated cellist Mstislav Rostropovich, Dmitri Shostakovich’s Second Cello Concerto brings the audience into a musical conversation between two close friends, as soloist and orchestra trade ideas, jokes, and emotions. Longtime collaborators Music Director Laureate Michael Tilson Thomas and cellist superstar Gautier Capuçon continue the dialogue of musical minds in this concert, which also features Sergei Prokofiev’s immensely moving Fifth Symphony.
