23|24 Symphonic Series: Prodigies

March 16 @ 7:00 pm - 8:30 pm


Rossini: Figaro Overture
Shostakovich: Cello Concerto No. 1 in E-flat Major, Op. 107
Farrenc: Symphony No. 3 in C Minor, Op. 32

At the tender age of 19, Dmitri Shostakovich achieved world eminence as a composer with his First Symphony. He was widely recognized as a composing prodigy. Over 30 years later he wrote his first Cello Concerto for his good friend, the great cellist Mstislav Rostropovich.
In the mid-18th century Louise Farrenc made her mark in musical circles as a piano prodigy.  Her creative genius spilled over into composing. However, much of Farrenc’s music remained unappreciated until just recently. Experience her Symphony No. 3 on March 16—- a daring and masterful work. Don’t miss an evening of unforgettable gems, written by musical prodigies and performed by the MSO and Minnesota’s own impressive cellist, Tony Ross!
