FLORENCE PRICE - Concert Overture No. 2DVOŘÁK - Cello concerto
MUSSORGSKY (RAVEL) - Pictures at an Exhibition
Concert Overture No.2 by Florence Price, with its welcoming themes from popular Spirituals and more than a passing nod to American patriotism, will get things going. The passion continues when Long Beach Symphony’s own Cécilia Tsan takes center stage in Antonín Dvořák’s ardent cello concerto, beloved both for the deeply felt emotion it evokes in audiences and for the showmanship and mastery it showcases in its soloist. Modest Mussorgsky’s vivid Pictures at an Exhibition completes the evening’s program.
