Discover Majestic Bruckner/Dvořák Grandeur at Dr. Phillips Center for Performing Arts. Enter Bruckner’s expansive soundworld…become one with its sonorities…get carried away by the radiant strings, the majestic brasses, the long-breathed phrases, and, ultimately, the splendor of his music! Now more than ever, Bruckner is a balm for the soul. Leading into the symphony is Dvořák’s Cello Concerto, a work of symphonic grandeur and passion that will showcase the astonishing technique and artistry of Jan Vogler (“…a convincing balance between introspection and drama…” ~ Financial Times). The Romantic vocabulary of Emilie Mayer’s dramatic Overture, exploring Faust’s soul, starts this concert’s journey.
