Bizet's Symphony in C
Joslyn Art Museum - Sunday, May 19
Carmen composer Georges Bizet wrote his only symphony at age seventeen. A masterpiece on par with Mendelssohn's greatest works, the symphony was – astoundingly – never played in Bizet's lifetime. It sparkles in a program that opens with Debussy's delightful suite and continues with Jeffrey Mumford's radiant cello concerto, played by adventurous cello soloist and Itzhak Perlman protégé and collaborator Christine Lamprea.
