NEW JERSEY SYMPHONY ORCHESTRA
Hailed by Gramophone as “one of the finest among the astonishing gallery of young virtuoso cellists,” Johannes Moser stars in the Dvořák Cello Concerto. Romantic works by Schumann and Schubert showcase the artistry of the NJSO’s musicians.
SCHUMANN Konzertstuck for Four Horns (NJSO Premiere)
Festive and virtuosic: 19th-century advances in the French horn made it possible for Schumann to compose the concerto. The NJSO’s horn section steps into the spotlight.
SCHUBERT Symphony No. 8, “Unfinished”
Time stops during this two-movement symphony of sublime expression. You’ll marvel at the endless, songful melodies and long to hear the final uncompleted movements!
DVOŘÁK Cello Concerto
The king of the cello concertos! The rich tone of superstar Johannes Moser shines as he conquers a piece that matches Dvořák’s “New World” Symphony for drama, melody and passion.
