One of the finest cellists of our time, Johannes Moser makes his TSO debut with a concerto written for the legendary Mstislav Rostropovich. Based on Baudelaire’s Les fleurs du mal, each movement of this dramatic piece is inspired by a different poem. Framing the concerto are Valerie Coleman’s anthem for unity, Umoja, and Respighi’s hot-blooded, dazzling tone poems, Fountains of Rome and Pines of Rome, sure to lift the roof off the Music Hall!
