saturday night at 7:30 and monday at 8pm, the oregon symphony backs up an internationally-celebrated cello virtuoso in some sweet, sweet stripped-down tchaikovsky. but wait, there’s more! an *ecstasy-fueled composition by thomas adès kicks off the program and a smash hit from the always-engaging Prokofiev finishes the night off.
why go? like honestly, i don’t know which one of these 3 points is more kick-ass: 1) in less than a year, cellist alban gerhardt is back on the schnitzer stage. 2) this is the third consecutive classical show to feature a work by a living composer. 3) this week the band’s assistant principal bassist just scored tenure.
