About This Program

Approximate length 0:56

“A force of liberation, out to help you escape any boxes into which you may have placed the classical concert experience,” (Star Tribune) Artistic Partner Abel Selaocoe returns to the Ordway to lead a program of Baroque and Classical works that showcase the cello. A world-class collaborator on and off stage, Selaocoe will perform both as soloist and as chamber musician with the SPCO. From Luigi Boccherini’s evocation of night music in Madrid and Franz Joseph Haydn’s Evening Symphony to Selaocoe’s own beautiful contemporary compositions, this program explores themes of night and day — sunrise and sunset — spanning centuries and cultures.

Our Express Concerts are 60-75 minutes of music without intermission. Learn more at thespco.org/express.
