For the first event in our Summer Concert Series, the spirit of modern art comes together with the vitality of the cello in a program of modern cello music in the Museum’s 20th-century gallery. Cellist Maksim Velichkin performs works by Hans Werner Henze, an outstanding German composer; Gaspar Cassadó, one of the most influential cellist-composers of the 20th century, whose suite for solo cello is infused with Spanish flavor; and 21st-century Los Angeles composer George N. Gianopoulos.
