8 pm “Heart of Europe” Classical Series concert brings young conductor, cellist together for evening of Bohemian music…and romance

On the weekend following Valentine’s Day, Friday February 17 and Saturday February 18 at 8pm in the Schuster Center, dynamic French conductor Ludovic Morlot will lead the Dayton Philharmonic Orchestra in a celebration of three great Bohemian composers. And speaking of romance, you can’t help but fall in love with the emotional depth of the masterful cello playing of the youthful, talented Julie Albers.

Ludovic Morlot is this year’s Benjamin and Marian Schuster Endowed Young Classical Artist. He has served as assistant conductor to Sir Colin Davis, Sir André Prévin, Seiji Ozawa, and Rafael Frühbeck de Burgos.

Morlot will lead the DPO in performance of Bedrich Smetana’s tone poem, The Moldau, and Bohislav Martinu’s signature neo-classical Symphony No. 5. Then Ms. Albers takes the stage and joins Morlot and the DPO, to delve deeply into the heart of Dvorák’s great Cello Concerto in B minor, op. 104.

Destined to be one of the most acclaimed and admired American artists of the 21st Century, cellist Julie Albers is recognized for superlative artistry, intense musicianship, and charismatic performing style far beyond her years.

Two young, talented musicians; beautiful Bohemian music under the stars in the Mead Theatre ceiling; the memory of Valentine’s Day in the air….
