Bucks County Symphony Winter Concert
The Bucks County Symphony (BCS) is proud to announce the annual winter concert to be held at Central Bucks High School South, 1100 Folly Road Warrington, PA on Sunday February 24, 2008 at 3:00 PM. The featured soloist will be Ilya Finkelshteyn, Principal Cellist of the Baltimore Symphony, performing the Cello Concerto in A minor by Robert Schumann. This piece is considered one of Schumanns more daring and adventurous works; it includes musical phrases in homage to his wife Clara.
Praised by the Washington Post as a complete master of his instrument, Ilya Finkelshteyn has performed throughout the United States, Canada, Europe and Japan. In 2002 he became Principal Cello of the Baltimore Symphony Orchestra. Prior to that, Mr. Finkelshteyn was a member of the St. Louis Symphony Orchestra for five seasons. Mr. Finkelshteyn has won numerous prizes, including the Juilliard Concerto Competition.
The orchestra is under the direction of Maestro Gary Fagin and in addition to the Schumann concerto will perform the Hebrides Overture by Felix Mendelssohn, and Anton Bartoks Symphony No. 4 in E- Flat Major. Mr. Bruckner described the Fourth as Romantic, referring to the medieval romance depicted by Wagner in his operas Lohengrin and Siegfried. Maestro Fagin is in his sixth season as music director and resides in New York with his wife and family.
The concert starts at 3:00 PM; tickets are available at the door, at Rutherfords Camera Shop in Doylestown, by mail, or through our website. Ticket prices are as follows: Adult ticket $18 ($20 dollars at the door), Senior Citizen ticket $15 and students are free.
