Yo Yo Ma & The BSO - Starts 10/13

10/05/2011 11:16:00 PM
I've been waiting to see Yo Yo Ma in concert for I don't know how many years.  I played the cello in high school.  I was actually pretty good too.  Then I went to college and lived in a frat house and was afraid to have anything value in my room lest it get covered in beer.  Looks like my chance is coming up in about a week. 

The Boston Symphony Orchestra welcomes legendary cellist Yo-Yo Ma to the BSO stage for an open rehearsal and concert series running October 13-18. We’d love for you to let your readers know about these concerts. Spanish conductor Juanjo Mena will lead the orchestra and Mr. Ma in a performance of Dvořák’s Cello Concerto in the concerts' first half, and a rare performance Bartók’s The Wooden Prince after intermission. Infused with fairy-tale elements as well as Bartók’s intense love of nature, The Wooden Prince tells the story of a prince who attempts to woo a princess from a neighboring kingdom through the use of a magic puppet.

Thursday, October 13, 10:30 a.m. (Open Rehearsal)
Thursday, October 13, 8 p.m.
Friday, October 14, 1:30 p.m.
Saturday, October 15, 8 p.m.
Tuesday, October 18, 8 p.m.

Juanjo Mena, conductor*
Yo-Yo Ma, cello
DVOŘÁK Cello Concerto
BARTÓK The Wooden Prince

I'm not sure if there's more than one Dvorak Cello concerto. But if he's playing the one I'm thinking of, that piece is amazing.
