Music Director David Danzmayr conducts Beethoven’s Fifth Symphony, which remains one of the most celebrated symphonic works in history. Hailed as a “remarkable cellist” and described as “sheer perfection,” cello virtuoso Kian Soltani takes the stage performing two works by Haydn and Iranian composer Reza Vali.

KERNIS – Musica Celestis
HAYDN – Cello Concerto No. 1
VALI – “The Girl from Shiraz” from Persian Folk Songs for cello and orchestra [Ohio Premiere]
