Ernest Hemingway’s greatest stories come to life in Michael Daugherty’s Tales of Hemingway, a new concerto for cello and orchestra in which each movement is inspired by a different novel – and it won the 2017 GRAMMY Award. Cuban composer Ernesto Lecuona’s Malagueña evokes Spanish culture and rhythm. Then, in utter contrast, we take you to the rugged Finnish countryside for Sibelius’ waltz and his stunning Fifth Symphony, which ends with a glorious circular melody.

Francesco Lecce-Chong, Conductor | Zuill Bailey, Cello
