Skrowaczewski and Ross

SCHUMANN
Cello Concerto

BRUCKNER
Symphony No. 7

Schumann famously said that he couldn't write for virtuosos, that his aim was something else entirely.

So he poured into his Concerto a gorgeous lyricism, with moments of hold-your-breath beauty—all of which feels tailor-made for principal cellist Anthony Ross' stunning talent. Capping this will be our beloved force-of-nature Conductor Laureate Stanislaw Skrowaczewski, two weeks past his 92nd birthday, offering his marvelous interpretation of Bruckner's heaven-shaking Symphony No. 7.
