Mason Bates Cello Concerto in Fort Worth
Joshua Roman joins the Fort Worth Symphony Orchestra to present the Texas premiere of Mason Bates’s Cello Concerto under the baton of Miguel Harth-Bedoya, Friday, January 8 through Saturday, January 10. After a "world-class world premiere” (Seattle Times) with the Seattle Symphony last season, Joshua recently gave the concerto’s first Oklahoma performances with the Oklahoma City Philharmonic. According to the Oklahoman, “The work’s dedicatee proved to be a real champion of this contemporary piece, one that is destined to become Roman’s persuasive playing ably captured the finale’s jaunty nature, a lilting quality that was infectious,” continuing to say that that ”His encore…further cemented Roman’s reputation as one of classical music’s most intriguing stars.”
The evening’s program also includes Mason Bates’s Mothership and Beethoven’s Symphony No. 3, “Eroica”. Find tickets and more information here.
