The musical program has been set for our afternoon with cellist Tessa Seymour and Cal Performances’ Executive and Artistic Director Matias Tarnopolsky, and it’s full of cherished gems and lesser-known enchantments.

Pēteris Vasks: Dolcissimo
György Ligeti: Sonata for Solo Cello
Gaspar Cassadó: Intermezzo e Danza Finale
Tessa is on the brink of becoming a widely recognized concert artist. Freshly graduated from the Curtis Institute of Music, she has already performed as concerto soloist with numerous orchestras, made a televised debut at Carnegie Hall, and recorded a debut album set to release this year. Her viewpoint is a rare one – that of a young prodigy with a musical understanding beyond her years. We’ve shared a video below to give a sense of the depth of her musicality.
