NEW JERSEY SYMPHONY ORCHESTRA
Hailed by Gramophone as “one of the finest among the astonishing gallery of young virtuoso cellists,” Johannes Moser stars in the Dvořák Cello Concerto—a piece that matches Dvořák’s “New World” Symphony for drama, melody and passion. Romantic works by Schumann and Schubert showcase the artistry of the NJSO’s musicians.

Program Change Information
Andrew Norman’s Cello Concerto will not be completed in time for its scheduled premiere performances on this concert, and will be postponed to a future season. Our soloist for these concerts, Johannes Moser, will now perform Dvořák’s Cello Concerto—a piece that matches the “New World” Symphony for drama, melody and passion. To complement this work, Music Director Xian Zhang has chosen Schubert’s popular and Romantic “Unfinished” Symphony in place of Brahms’ Symphony No. 4.
