About This Performance
A characteristically provocative cultural mix, Osvaldo Golijov’s Azul is a four-movement cello concerto inspired by a Neruda poem. Golijov updates the Baroque continuo accompaniment ideal by adding hyper-accordion (digitally enhanced) and exotic percussion, which jam with the cello at the center of the piece.
Marin Alsop’s powerful take on Tchaikovsky’s most profound symphony.
A rapidly rising young cellist tackles a contemporary challenge premiered by Yo-Yo Ma and Alisa Weilerstein.
