Acclaimed for his powerful tone, effortless virtuosity and extraordinarily large color palate, guest cellist Julian Schwarz reunites with his father on the podium to perform two of the program’s four Palm Beach Symphony premieres. He performs Saint-Saëns’ Cello Concerto No. 1, a work which the Hartford Courant noted of a previous concert by Schwarz, is “filled with tricky figuration…Schwarz heard beyond the virtuosic elements. Warmth and a variety of colors emerged in his lyrical playing.” He also treats the audience to the melodious and tranquil respite of Dvořák: Silent Woods for cello and orchestra. Palm Beach Symphony presents two early works that foreshadowed their composers’ future greatness: William Grant Still’s jazz and blues influenced expression of the Black experience Darker America and Mendelssohn’s fluid and ultimately fiery Symphony No. 1.
