Saint-Saëns Cello Concerto
The royal wedding of Meghan Markle to Prince Harry made an international sensation out of the mesmerizing cellist Sheku Kanneh- Mason, who makes his BSO debut playing Saint-Saëns’ charming First Cello Concerto. The concert opens with composer Florence Price’s brooding and lush tone poem, The Oak, and closes with Dvořák’s exquisite Seventh Symphony.
