Santa Rosa Symphony Classical Concert - Poetic Inspiration

When: Sat., Nov. 8, 8-10 p.m., Sun., Nov. 9, 3-5 p.m. and Mon., Nov. 10, 8-10 p.m. 2014

Bruno Ferrandis, conductor Christian Poltéra, cello Debussy: Prelude to the Afternoon of a Faun Dutilleux: Tout un monde lointain Beethoven: Symphony No. 7 Beethoven’s Symphony No. 7 has been called “perfect,” and even the composer himself said it was “one of my best works.” Combine its feeling of spontaneity with Debussy’s revolutionary Prelude—based on a poem by Mallarmé—and a classic/romantic balance is struck. The charismatic Christian Poltéra interprets a cello concerto by another Frenchman, whose innovation and vision of “a whole distant world” was also inspired by art and poetry. He performs on a 1711 Stradivarius cell, “Mara.”

Price: $20-$80
