Sterling Elliott, the winner of the 2019 Sphinx Competition, joins Dayton Philharmonic to perform Saint-Saëns’ Cello Concerto No. 1. In addition to highlighting the cello’s virtuosity and full range, the concerto’s adept scoring elevates the orchestra beyond a simple accompanist.
Mozart’s Missa brevis (brief mass) features a “cameo” appearance by the organ and includes the magnificent DPO Chorus. Beethoven’s Symphony No. 2 concludes the Masterworks Series and the DPO’s Beethoven symphony cycle. In the face of increasing deafness, this Symphony is the jubilant proof of Beethoven’s will to persevere and continue composing great works.

Saint-Saëns Cello Concerto No. 1 (19 minutes)
Beethoven Symphony No. 2 (35 minutes)
