The Great Falls Symphony continues its 61st season on Saturday, February 8, 2020 at 7:30 pm, with Café Noir, featuring cellist Inbal Segev. This concert will be presented without intermission and will be followed with a reception onstage. For tickets, contact the Mansfield box office at 406-455-8514, or visit gfsymphony.org.
Israeli American cellist Inbal Segev is a true original. Combining “thrillingly projected, vibrato-rich playing (not to mention a beautifully judged range of color and dynamics)” (Washington Post) with “rich tone, secure presence and complete technical mastery” (Jerusalem Post), her performances are distinguished by their artistic maturity, intense focus and rare interpretive depth. Besides making solo appearances at leading international venues and with preeminent orchestras and conductors worldwide, she is, with former New York Philharmonic concertmaster Glenn Dicterow and violist Karen Dreyfus, a founding member of the Amerigo Trio. Celebrated for her fresh insights into music’s great masterworks, she is equally committed to reinvigorating the cello repertoire, and has commissioned and premiered major new works from an international who’s who of today’s foremost contemporary composers, including Timo Andres, Anna Clyne, Avner Dorman, Gity Razaz and Dan Visconti. She has co-curated the Baltimore Symphony Orchestra’s New Music Festival since its inception in 2017, and she will be taking center stage at the Mansfield Theater in Great Falls to perform Dmitri Kabalevsky’s Cello Concerto No. 1.
Also on the program is Dmitri Shostakovich’s Suite for Variety Orchestra, which has been has been popularized in films like Eyes Wide Shut and Batman vs Superman: Dawn of Justice, and been heard in ads for Sprint, Nextel, and Lincoln Motor Company.
