May 2022 Concert
The cello concerto of Antonín Dvořák is unsurpassed in the repertory of works for cello and orchestra and was the final composition of his stay in America; Arlen Hlusko debuts with the ESO in this passionate memorial to a lost love. Tragic love is also the hallmark of Tchaikovsky’s first masterwork, his Romeo and Juliet.
Transcend, by the Chinese-American Zhou Tian, commemorates the 150th anniversary of the completion in 1869 of the transcontinental railroad and honors the Chinese and Irish immigrants who suffered during its construction. The ESO is proud to have been a member of the consortium which commissioned Transcend.
