CAFE NOIR featuring cellist INBAL SEGEV
Shostakovich, Kabalevsky, and Milhaud–each with their own style–are united in a concert featuring cellist Inbal Segev, whose musical interpretations have been described as “unreservedly natural and insightful.”
Regarded as one of the major 20th-century composers, Dmitri Shostakovich, a Russian composer and pianist, was a polystylist who combined a variety of musical techniques in his works. His Suite for Variety Orchestra No. 1 has been popularized in films like Eyes Wide Shut and Batman vs Superman: Dawn of Justice, and been heard in ads for Sprint, Nextel, and Lincoln Motor Company.
Dmitri Kabalevsky was a leading figure in the Union of Soviet Composers in Moscow who embraced the ideas of socialist realism and wrote his music for the people. His Cello Concerto No. 1 was one of his best-known “youth works.”
Israel-born cellist INBAL SEGEV was 16 when a recommendation by Isaac Stern brought her to the United States to continue her studies. Segev, who debuted with the Israel Philharmonic and the Berlin Philharmonic under the direction of Zubin Mehta, has performed with symphonies worldwide.
French composer and conductor Darius Milhaud was one of the most prolific composers of the last century. Considered one of the key modernists, his works were influenced by the jazz and Brazilian music he learned while living in South America. Le boeuf sur le toit (The Ox on the Roof: The Nothing-Doing Bar) recalls the smoky jazz haunts where he first heard the sensuous Carnaval rhythms that inspired one of his best-known compositions.
