JACKSON HOLE, WYOMING
The Grand Teton Music Festival’s summer season continues with a diverse lineup of musical stars, headlined by artist-in-residence Maja Bogdanović.
Hailed by The Strad after her Carnegie Hall recital for “an outstanding performance of exceptional tonal beauty, great maturity of interpretation, and technical excellence,” Maja Bogdanović continues to reward audiences worldwide as one of the leading cellists of today.
Her residency begins with a Chamber Music performance on Thursday, July 13 at 8PM. This must-hear program includes Copland’s iconic Appalachian Spring in its original version for thirteen instruments. Rachmaninoff’s lush sonata for cello performed by Bogdanović and Festival pianist Jason Hardink will cap off the evening.
Maja Bogdanović makes her Festival Orchestra debut with the ebullient Saint-Saëns Cello Concerto No. 1 on Friday, July 14 at 8PM and Saturday, July 15 at 6PM. Maestro Cristian Măcelaru returns to the podium to lead the Festival Orchestra in Prokofiev’s masterful take on Romeo and Juliet as well as Romanian Rhapsody, a work by Mr. Măcelaru’s fellow countryman George Enescu.
Maja Bogdanović’s residency also includes a free family concert at Walk Festival Hall on Saturday, July 15 at 11AM. Children and families get a chance to get up-close with the cello and enjoy music selections for young ones. This is a free event, but tickets are required for this family affair.
