Inbal Segev & Metropolis Ensemble Premiere Timo Andres Cello Concerto

April 21, 2018 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm

| $50.

MetLiveArts presents cellist Inbal Segev in the world premiere of Timo Andres’ new cello concerto, Upstate Obscura, with the Metropolis Ensemble led by Andrew Cyr. Written for Segev and the Metropolis Ensemble, Upstate Obscura is inspired by Hudson Valley neoclassicist painter John Vanderlyn’s Panoramic View of the Palace and Gardens of Versailles, on display at The Met’s Visitors to Versailles exhibition.

Early-music vocal group TENET joins Metropolis Ensemble for two additional works on this concert: French Baroque composer Marc-Antoine Charpentier’s short opera Les Plaisirs de Versailles; and a new work for period and modern instruments by Pulitzer Prize-winner Caroline Shaw, inspired by the exhibition.
