Aldo Parisot will lead the Grammy-nominated ensemble that he founded over thirty years ago in a diverse program of music from the baroque to the present day. The works will range from classics by Arcangelo Corelli, J. S. Bach, and Edvard Grieg to newer works by Ezra Laderman and Dave Brubeck. TICKET INFO
The concert begins with the Allegro agitato from Edvard Grieg’s Cello Sonata in A minor, performed by Chang Pan, a second-year master’s student of Aldo Parisot at the Yale School of Music. Assistant professor of cello Ole Akahoshi, who performed a duet with Yo-Yo Ma in Woolsey Hall in January, will then perform the Partita for Solo Cello by Ezra Laderman.
Laderman, who passed away on February 28, was a prolific composer who served as dean of the Yale School of Music from 1989 to 1995 and later as professor of composition until his retirement in 2013. His longtime connection with the Yale Cellos was particularly rich, and over the years Aldo Parisot and the Yale Cellos performed and recorded a number of works Laderman wrote for the ensemble. MORE
