Next, we move to Czechoslovakia and the lavish melodic lines of Antonin Dvorak’s Silent Woods for solo cello and orchestra.
Southern California virtuoso, Jacob Braun, will be featured in this work and then close the program with one of the most beloved pieces of the cello repertoire – Tchaikovsky’s Rococo Variations.
