In conjunction with its current exhibition, Edward Boccia: Figurative Expressionist, the Saint Louis University Museum of Art
is pleased to host an evening, tomorrow night, with musicians from the St. Louis Symphony, featuring principal cellist Daniel Lee!
Doors open at 5:30 p.m., and the performance begins promptly at 6 p.m. The performance is free and open to the public, but seating is limited.
In advance of his California tour in March 2013, Lee will perform Hungarian composer Zoltán Kodaly’s
unaccompanied Cello Sonata which is considered a piece of great virtuosity that allows its listeners a reference to the traditional folk music of the composer’s homeland while enveloping modern sensibility. The evening promises to be engaging and enlightening as the piece, which was composed in 1915, is considered one the most noteworthy for the cello. Lee has been called “assertive and commanding” by the New York Times.
The concert, which is part of the STL Symphony’s Symphony in Your College program, will also include a string quartet performance by Symphony musicians Helen Kim and Jooyeon Kong, violins, Di Shi, viola and Bjorn Ranheim, cello.
