Beethoven/Paul Griffiths (text) _The General _(U.S. Premiere)
Edward Elgar Cello Concerto
Special Guests: Maya Beiser, cellist; Philip Larson, narrator
Alexis Grenier, soprano
Beethoven’s moving Elegy for chorus and string orchestra begins a program that features stunning guest artist Maya Beiser performing Elgar’s heartbreaking Cello Concerto. In The General, author/librettist Paul Griffiths draws a composite score from Beethoven (Egmont, King Stephen, Leonore Prohaska and Opferlied) and adds text to create a dramatic work for orchestra, chorus, and actor that tells the story of the Rwandan tragedy through the eyes of the general leading the U.N. peacekeeping mission.
