The Washington Post says Zuill Bailey’s cello playing is “as rich as melted chocolate.” Bailey joins LSO for a performance of Dvořák’s transcendent Cello Concerto in B Minor. The concert closes with Brahms’ final symphony, his Symphony No.4 in E minor, with allusions to Beethoven and Bach, whose works he studied. Join us for a hot chocolate bar, complete with Baileys for adults!
