Join Bravo! Vail Music Festival this July evening as the strings of the New York Philharmonic take center stage. The program opens with Principal Cello Carter Brey – celebrated for his “elegant phrasing and deft technique” (The New York Times) – playing Haydn’s beautifully poised Cello Concerto in C major. The concert also includes Carlos Simon’s Fate Now Conquers, titled from a journal entry by Ludwig van Beethoven, and Tchaikovsky’s Souvenir de Florence, which juxtaposes delightful images of the sun-warmed Italian landscape — colored by the burnished sound of a string orchestra — with glorious Russian intensity.
Tickets to this performance at the beautiful Gerald R. Ford Amphitheater in Vail, Colorado are available on Bravo! Vail’s website – for either livestream or in-person enjoyment.
