Cello Concerto & Other Works 

The Santa Rosa Symphony orchestra in conjunction with Delos Productions located in Sonoma, CA, brings you Cello Concerto & Other Works, composed by Pulitzer Prize-winning American composer Ellen Taaffe Zwilich. Featuring world-renowned cellist Zuill Bailey, performing on Cello Concerto, pianist Elizabeth Dorman on Peanuts® Gallery and violinist Joseph Edelberg on Romance for Violin. It concludes with Prologue and Variations, with the Santa Rosa Symphony conducted by Francesco Lecce-Chong. Recorded at Weill Hall, Green Music Center, in Rohnert Park, CA, in the 2020-2021 virtual season. This album contains four compositions containing 12 original tracks with a running time of 53:28 minutes.

"This recording is a tribute to the incredible commitment and perseverance of the Santa Rosa Symphony to bringing music to our community during the darkest days of the Covid-19 pandemic. It was a herculean effort by our musicians, staff, board, and donors to keep our orchestra not just surviving, but thriving and growing. This is also a celebration of one of the most important composers of our time, Ellen Taaffe Zwilich, whose creativity, imagination, joy, and brilliance are showcased in every work - most notably in the premiere recording of her Cello Concerto featuring Grammy-winner Zuill Bailey." said SRS President & CEO Alan Silow.
