The concert opens with Mozart’s brilliant and bustling overture to his comic opera The Marriage of Figaro, followed by a modern masterpiece by Austrian pianist and composer Friedrich Gulda, who worked in both classical and jazz styles. His cello concerto, performed by SBSO’s principal cellist, Igor Cetkovic, blurs the boundaries between musical genres combining a rhythm section of guitar, bass, and drum set in a work which is, in Gulda’s words, “jazz, a minuet, rock, a smidgen of polka, a march, and a cadenza with two spots where the star cellist must improvise.” The program concludes with Beethoven’s exuberant seventh symphony, a popular work described by Wagner as the apotheosis of the dance.”

Featuring Igor Cetkovic, a special guest.
