PROFOUND INTENSITY: Regarded as one of the finest composers of the 19th century, Louise Farrenc captures Beethoven’s fire in her Overture No. 1. Jessie Montgomery’s Caught by the Wind evokes the spinning of bicycle wheels, the movement of wind and the cycles of life. Berlioz declares his consuming passion for actress Harriet Smithson in Love Scene from Romeo and Juliet. World-renowned cellist Zuill Bailey will perform Dvořák’s powerful Cello Concerto, sometimes called the “king of cello concertos.”

His rare combination of celebrated artistry, technical wizardry and engaging personality has secured his place as one of the most sought after and active cellists today.

A consummate concerto soloist, Mr. Bailey has been featured with symphony orchestras worldwide. He made his concerto debut at Carnegie Hall performing the U.S. premiere of Miklos Theodorakis’ “Rhapsody for Cello and Orchestra.” He made his New York recital debut in a sold out performance of the complete Beethoven Cello Sonatas at the Metropolitan Museum of Art.
