tessa-matias

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.

J.S. Bach: Selections from Suite No. 5
Krzysztof Penderecki: Selections from the Suite for Solo Cello
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.

Joining the conversation with Tessa is none other than Cal Performances’ Director Matias Tarnopolsky. A seasoned veteran of the business of the performing arts, he’s worked with most all of the celebrated performers of the world, and brings to this conversation a singularly knowledgeable viewpoint.

We think this is a rare opportunity to learn something about the journey of a young artist and its many challenges, and to listen to exquisite music in an acoustically enhanced and intimate atmosphere. We hope to see you there!
