Schubert: Symphony No. 9, “The Great”

Joshua Weilerstein returns to conduct Schubert’s Symphony No. 9, “The Great,” as well as rock star cellist Joshua Roman on Bates’ Cello Concerto, and Still’s Poem for Orchestra.

“Classical rock star” Joshua Roman performs the Bates Cello Concerto, written just for him. What’s it like to work with a composer who’s alive? Click here for more on the blog.

It’s easy to be entranced by soloist Joshua Roman in the Bates Cello Concerto. But if you hang out in the percussion section, it’s all about the cowbells and thumb pianos. Tuned, of course. See and hear what we found, on the blog, with video clips.
