Reno Phil Classix #5: Clyne’s Cello Concerto

Transforming five lines of Rumi poetry into a musical language given voice by solo cello, Anna Clyne’s cello concerto, “Dance” will captivate listeners with an intensely emotional and evocative modern piece. Written for New-York based cellist Inbal Segev and the Baltimore Symphony Orchestra, the concerto’s opening movement has over 3 million plays on Spotify and was named among NPR Music’s “Favorite Songs of 2020.” Dvořák’s Seventh Symphony is regarded by many as his greatest composition, taking listeners on a journey from darkness to light. The concert opens with Conga del Fuego Nuevo by Mexican composer Arturo Marquez, led by guest conductor Irene Delgago-Jimeenez, Associate Fellow of the Taki-Alsop Conducting Fellowship.
