Dvořák's Cello Concerto: MANUSCRIPT DISCOVERY

Join us for a historic presentation of an original manuscript, the recently discovered solo cello part of Antonín Dvořák's American masterwork, the Cello Concerto, with an exhibition, interactive performance, and panel discussion by Dvořák experts.

This event offers a window into the world of Dvořák's creative process and collaboration with his German-American colleague, cellist Alwin Schroeder, in whose personal archive the manuscript was found.
Co-Chairs Professor Michael Beckerman of New York University (Vice-President of Dvořák American Heritage Association) and Professor Jeffrey Solow of Temple University (President of Violoncello Society, Inc.), along with Cellist Terry King, Conductor and Professor Maurice Peress, Cellist Christine Walevska, and
Cellist Robert A. Williams, Jr., manuscript owner.

Students from The Juilliard School, Mannes College, and The Manhattan School of Music have been invited to play the three movements of the concerto and interact with the expert panelists. Dvořák's song Leave Me Alone, at the heart of the cello piece, will also be sung by Amelia Lubrano, a recent graduate of the Aaron Copland School of Music.

Organized by Dvořák American Heritage Association and the Violoncello Society, Inc.
