“A phenomenal cellist” destined for “a stellar career,” according to the Washington Post, Narek Hakhnazaryan brings what many consider to be the ultimate romantic work for cello: the gorgeous and powerful concerto by Antonin Dvorak. Anu Tali, the acclaimed young Estonian conductor (and recently named music director of the Sarasota Symphony), mirrors Dvorak’s power and warmth with the richly colored, dramatic fifth Symphony by Tchaikovsky. Adding a dash of spice from home, the orchestra opens the concert with a popular work by one of Estonia’s most influential composers Veljo Tormis, rounding out a program that is thrilling, beautiful and thoroughly satisfying in content and artistry. How can you resist?
