Dvořák Symphony No. 7
September 29–October 2, 2022
Conductor Jonathon Heyward returns for the Seattle Symphony premiere of Esa-Pekka Salonen’s Cello Concerto, which was inspired by science fiction and outer space, chaos and comets. Cellist Nicolas Altstaedt joins the orchestra to perform this exciting work. Then, we travel back to Earth and the musical landscape of Bohemia with Dvořák’s stormy and dramatic Seventh Symphony.
