Pablo Rus Broseta, conductor
Christine Lamprea, cello
DEBUSSY: Petite Suite
MUMFORD: Cello Concerto: "of fields unfolding echoing depths of resonant light."
BIZET: Symphony in C
Carmen composer Georges Bizet wrote his only symphony at age seventeen. A masterpiece on par with Mendelssohn's greatest works, the symphony was - astoundingly - never played in Bizet's lifetime. It sparkles in a program that opens with Debussy's delightful suite and continues with Jeffrey Mumford's radiant cello concerto, played by adventurous cello soloist and Itzhak Perlman protégé and collaborator Christine Lamprea.
