Romantic Passions

Jacques Lacombe, conductor
Zuill Bailey, cello

GRIEG:  Peer Gynt  Suite No. 1
DVOŘÁK:  Cello Concerto
FRANCK:  Symphony in D minor

Czech master Dvořák’s cello concerto is not only the greatest work of its kind, but a masterpiece in its own right. Composed at the close of his three-year period in America, this large scale work aches with homesickness for his native Bohemia. The symphony in D minor of César Franck also wears its heart on its sleeve, progressing from initial uncertainty to a triumphant conclusion. Grieg’s delectable Peer Gynt Suite adds a splash of Norwegian sunshine to the program.
