Westchester Philharmonic Season Opener


Jaime Laredo, conducting
Sharon Robinson, cello

Theofanidis: Dreamtime Ancestors (*NY-area Premiere)
Shostakovich: Cello Concerto No. 1
Beethoven: Symphony No. 4


To open our 33rd season and Jaime Laredo‘s second as Principal Conductor, we’ve invited Sharon Robinson, who with husband Laredo comprise two-thirds of the renowned Kalichstein-Laredo-Robinson Trio, for the towering Shostakovich. We also proudly premiere a new work by acclaimed composer Christopher Theofanidis, whose music has been described as “unabashedly joyful” (Boston Globe), “rapturous” (Houston Chronicle), and “lyrical, exotic soul-searching” (New York Times). Hector Berlioz once described the second movement Adagio of Beethoven’s Fourth as composed not by any human, but an angel.

Plus: Post-concert subscriber Kick-Off Party.
