Night on Bald Mountain

International Tchaikovsky Competition winner Andrei Ionita has been dubbed “one of the most exciting cellists to have emerged for a decade” (The Times). Be there as this 23-year-old sensation makes his North American concert debut with a barn burner by Shostakovich. An evening of Russian fire and French luster also features a fiendish favorite by Mussorgsky and Debussy’s airy, luminous reveries of drifting clouds and sirens’ songs.
