Yo-Yo Ma Rises To The Thrilling Heights Of Shostakovich's Second Cello Concerto
Don't miss a thrilling program of Russian greats, presented by the Chicago Symphony Orchestra. They'll be joined by two of the world's leading classical music emissaries in the form of Chicago Symphony music director and renowned conductor Riccardo Muti, and Grammy-winning, celebrated cellist Yo-Yo Ma. Together, the ensemble will mine the depths of the soul with works by Shostakovich and Prokofiev.
A match made in musical heaven, Muti and Yo-Yo Ma have performed alongside each other before with stunning results. They'll be lending their brilliance to the grand orchestral madness and fury of Dmitri Shostakovich's Cello Concerto No. 2. With incredibly challenging cello writing, the concerto should prove no match for the dextrous fingers of Yo-Yo Ma, a performer heralded as one of, if not the greatest cellists in the world.
