Event Information

With four featured composers in the house, Maestro Cristian Măcelaru and the Cabrillo Festival Orchestra will carry us on a poetic journey through one U.S. premiere and three West Coast premieres. Composer Anna Clyne’s new work DANCE for cello and orchestra features Inbal Segev, a cellist praised for her “warm, pure and beautiful tone” (Strings Magazine). Renowned mezzo-soprano Jamie Barton returns to the stage tonight to join Segev in Jake Heggie’s The Work at Hand, three symphonic songs set to poems by the late poet Laura Morefield. Joining us for her piece Kraken is Pulitzer Prize-winner Du Yun is a Chinese-born composer, vocalist and multi-instrumentalist—described by The New York Times as “an indie pop diva with an avant-garde edge.” Composer Dan Dediu made his Festival debut in 2018 with Grana and returns this evening for Levante, a musical transposition of the “sacred geometry” found in his Romanian hometown of Brăila.
