Intersections: Kodály, Clyne, Skoryk, and Tchaikovsky
Donato Cabrera leads the California Symphony in a program of dances and melodies. Kodály’s Dances of Galánta begins the concert, contrasted with Anna Clyne’s DANCE for Cello and Orchestra, featuring cellist Inbal Segev as soloist. Clyne wrote DANCE with Inbal in mind, so expect an exceptionally poignant performance! Ukrainian composer Myroslav Skoryk’s emotional and tragic Melody begins the second half, developing into Tchaikovsky’s Symphony No. 2, which uses Ukrainian folk songs to great effect.
