Cello star Han-Na Chang with the VSO at the Orpheum
Cello star Han-Na Chang made her first recording at just 12 years old, with the London Symphony Orchestra, and things have gone steadily uphill from there. The artist now sells albums and plays concerts around the world, winning prize after prize along the way. This Saturday and Monday (October 2 and 4) at the Orpheum, with the Vancouver Symphony Orchestra, she puts her bow to one of the great cello concertos: Edward Elgar’s Cello Concerto in E Minor, Op. 85. Also on the program: Anton Dvorák’s powerful Symphony No. 7, all under the baton of Jesús López-Cobos, who just left his post as music director of Teatro Real in Madrid.
