Considered lighthearted but not lightweight, Beethoven’s Eighth Symphony is paired with Debussy’s beloved Impressionist piece, La Mer. In honor of the 100th anniversary of Dutilleux’s birthday, his cello concerto Tout un monde lointain, written for Rostropovich, will be performed by faculty artist Eric Kutz. 


  • Debussy: La Mer
  • Dutilleux: Toutun monde lointain
  • Beethoven: Symphony No. 8

Eric Kutz is the recipient of The Barbara K. Steppel Memorial Faculty Fellowship in Cello.
