About This Program

Approximate length 1:12

This program features the SPCO’s spectacular cello section! Richard Belcher, the most recent addition to the section, takes the spotlight in former SPCO Composer-in-Residence Chen Yi’s Sound of the Five for solo cello with string quartet. Haydn’s First Cello Concerto, now a staple of cello repertoire and beloved by audiences, was thankfully rediscovered in 1961. SPCO Principal Cellist Julie Albers will perform Haydn’s treasured concerto in C, which demonstrates the wide range and versatility of the cello.
