The Mid-Atlantic Symphony is proud to present world-renowned French cellist Dominique de Williencourt as the featured soloist in their upcoming season finale concerts. De Williencourt will be performing Shostakovich’s Cello Concerto No. 1, a stunning work of emotional depth and technical brilliance.
This performance promises to be an unforgettable experience, as de Williencourt brings his virtuosic skill and dynamic interpretation to this powerful piece. Shostakovich’s Cello Concerto No. 1 is a deeply personal work, reflecting the composer’s struggles with the Soviet regime and his own mortality. De Williencourt’s performance promises to capture the raw emotion and intensity of this masterpiece.
The concert program will also feature Rishab Jain, who most recently won the Dove Marimba Concerto Competition at the Kennedy Center, in the fourth movement of Brazilian composer Ney Rosauro’s Marimba Concerto No. 1. The concert will conclude with Dvorak’s Symphony No. 9 “From the New World,” a beloved work that has become a cornerstone of the classical repertoire. This symphony is a musical tribute to America, with its soaring melodies and colorful orchestration capturing the spirit and energy of the New World.
Under the baton of Grammy award-winning music director Michael Repper, the Mid-Atlantic Symphony will bring these masterpieces to life with passion and precision. The April concerts are not to be missed, offering a rare opportunity to hear a world-class cellist along with the Mid-Atlantic Symphony in an unforgettable performance.
