Houston Symphony presents Haydn & Sibelius
The Houston Symphony continues its celebration of Sibelius’ 150th birthday with his tone poem, The Bard, and his soaring Symphony No. 1. Acclaimed Argentine cellist Sol Gabetta performs not one, but two cello concertos: Haydn’s gracious Cello Concerto No. 1 in C major and Saint-Saëns’ thrilling Cello Concerto No. 1 in A minor. Conductor John Storgårds returns to Houston to display his prowess with the baton as well as with the bow when he leads the orchestra from the violin in the Haydn Concerto.
