Grammy-winning cellist Lynn Harrell, hailed as "the dean of American cellists," joins the Annapolis Symphony Orchestra for a concert featuring works from Shostakovich and Mahler. Since his Carnegie Hall debut at the age of 17 with the New York Philharmonic, Harrell's performed on the world's great stages, played for Pope John Paul II at the Vatican, was the first recipient of the Avery Fisher Award, appeared on dozens of recordings and taught at the most prestigious music schools. The Annapolis Symphony Orchestra, together since 1962, has grown into one of America's most celebrated regional orchestras. During this show at the Music Center at Strathmore, Harrell solos on Shostakovich's Concerto for Violoncello, known to be one of the most difficult to play of all works. The program also includes Mahler's Symphony No. 1.
