Cellist Inbal Segev will be performing Dvořák’s Cello Concerto in B Minor as the guest soloist with the Johnson City Symphony Orchestra on Saturday, Oct. 13.
The concert will be held in Seeger Chapel on the campus of Milligan College. Show time is 7:30 p.m.
Tickets to the show range from $10 to $35.
According to a news release, this all-Dvořák program, entitled “Bohemian Inspirations,” will led by Music Director Robert J. Seebacher and will include Prague Waltzes and Symphony No. 7, Op. 70.
Composed in New York City in 1894-95, Dvořák’s Cello Concerto was the last solo concerto he wrote and is one of the most beloved works of cellists worldwide, the release notes.
“The bigger than life Dvořák concerto is a piece that I have played since I was 14 years old, so it grew with me and still feels new every time I play it. It is rich with beautiful melodies and virtuosic passages and a tour de force for the cello and cellist,” Segev said in the release.
Segev began playing the cello in Israel at age five and at 16 was invited by Isaac Stern to come to the U.S. to continue her studies.
She earned degrees from The Juilliard School and Yale University.
Today, she lives in New York City with her husband and three children. Her cello was made by Francesco Ruggieri in 1673.
Segev has performed as soloist with orchestras including the Pittsburgh Symphony Orchestra, Castleton Festival Orchestra with Lorin Maazel, Albany Symphony, Pasadena Symphony, Bogotá Philharmonic, Helsinki Philharmonic, Dortmund Philharmonic, the Orchestre National de Lyon, the Polish National Radio Symphony, and the Bangkok Symphony. She made debuts with the Berlin Philharmonic and Israel Philharmonic, led by Zubin Mehta, at age 17.
Her repertoire includes all of the standard concerti and solo works for cello, as well as new pieces and rarely performed gems. Recent concerto premieres include Timo Andres’ Upstate Obscura with Metropolis Ensemble at The Metropolitan Museum of Art in April 2018 and Dan Visconti’s Tangle Eye with the California Symphony in May 2017.
