  • The orchestra will perform Haydn’s Cello Concerto no. 1 and Rachmanioff’s Symphony no. 2.
  • The special guest, cellist Daniel Gaisford, has been revered as “transfixing” and “remarkable.”

The rich timbre of Haydn’s cello concerto and the majestic beauty of Rachmaninoff’s second symphony will fill the Tabernacle at the Orchestra at Temple Square’s annual fall concert on Friday and Saturday, October 18–19, at 7:30 p.m. This year’s special guest is Daniel Gaisford, a renowned American cellist.

The concert, titled “An Austrian Cello Concerto and a Russian Symphony,” will be directed by Igor Gruppman, conductor of the Orchestra at Temple Square. The concert will also mark Igor Gruppman’s 10th anniversary conducting the orchestra. Mr. Gaisford will take the lead solo in Haydn’s Cello Concerto no. 1, and for the second half of the evening the orchestra will perform Rachmaninoff’s Symphony no. 2 in E Minor.

Hailed by the New York Times as “transfixing” and the Philadelphia Inquirer as “remarkable,” Mr. Gaisford has firmly established himself as one of the most gifted cellists of his generation. As a soloist, he has appeared with orchestras throughout the United States and Canada, among them the major orchestras of St. Louis, Seattle, Toronto, and Montreal, under the direction of conductors such as Robert Spano, David Zinman, and Hermann Michael.
