TFO Masterworks: Dvorak's Cello Concerto
Michael Francis, conductor
Maximilian Hornung, violoncello
Smetana: Ma Vlast (The Moldau)
Dvorak: Cello Concerto
In a concert that focuses on the greatest masterpieces of Czech composers, Maximilian Hornung returns to perform Dvorak’s only cello concerto – and the gold standard for all others that followed. Also, a rare chance to experience Janacek’s bold showstopper Sinfonietta, with its celebratory brass fanfares. And Smetana depicts his homeland through the swirling river Moldau. Michael Francis conducts.
