Schönberg was inspired by deep love when he wrote Verklärte Nacht. Villa-Lobos’ work is written for eight cellos! The Quietness of that Winter by Alice Ho and text by Tina Biello will be premiered by Krisztina Szabó. This deeply romantic concert finishes with Marín’s playful Cuban dance vibes.
Please join the orchestra for a “sweet” following the performance in the lobby.
