CONCERT SUMMARY
 
This program opens with the permiere of a newly commissioned work by Andrea Reinkemeyer, Water Sings Fire for Orchestra. Featured in the Royal Wedding of Meghan Markle and Prince Harry, BBC Young Musician of the Year, Sheku Kanneh-Mason brings his talents to Louisiana for the first time. Hailed as “technically superb and eloquent in his expressivity”, Kanneh-Mason’s artistry will be on display as he performs Elgar’s Cello Concerto in E minor, a cornerstone of the cello repertoire. Rimsky-Korsakov’s Scheherazade is a dazzling grand finale full of excitement and colorful orchestration.

Water Sings Fire for Orchestra was commissioned by the Leauge of American Orchestras and the Louisiana Philharmonic Orchestra with the generous support of the Virginia B. Toulmin Foundation.
