Eric Jacobsen, conductor & cello | Colleen Blagov, flute
Orlando Philharmonic Music Director and cellist Eric Jacobsen will take the stage as soloist, performing Dvořák’s lush, romantic “Silent Woods.” Originally written for piano four-hands, the composer arranged it for cello and orchestra with this version now more popular than the original piano version.
