Dvořák’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
