This concert features the Finnish cellist Anssi Karttunen, who has frequently collaborated with the UC Davis Symphony Orchestra, in a new work by Aida Shirazi. Since receiving her doctorate in music composition from UC Davis in 2021, Shirazi has been gaining attention far and wide for her acoustic and electro-acoustic music, which a New York Times music critic described as “unfolding with deliberation.” In Dvořák’s Seventh Symphony the audience will enjoy the composer’s Slavonic spirit in an energetic and varied musical landscape.
