Principal Mission Quests

For her first concert since being appointed Principal Conductor of the New Amsterdam Symphony Orchestra (NASO), Tong Chen has invited the amazing young cellist, Mizuki Hayakawa, to perform the beautiful and contemplative Elgar Cello Concerto. NASO's primary mission is to feature emerging soloists and conductors, and at age 17, Ms. Hayakawa is exactly that. The main melody of the concerto apparently came to Elgar as he emerged from sedation after an operation. Rachmaninoff completed his Symphony No. 2 in 1907 after a 3 year quest, including hypno-therapy, following the disastrous premiere of his first symphony. The work won the 1908 Glinka prize. Since then the symphony was subjected to various cuts and revisions but in the 1960s conductors returned to the uncut version which will be performed at this NASO concert.
