    World renowned cellist Lynn Harrell returns to Spokane to perform again with the Gonzaga Symphony Orchestra.  Mr. Harrell’s presence is felt throughout the musical world. A consummate soloist, chamber musician, recitalist, conductor and teacher, his work throughout the Americas, Europe and Asia has placed him in the highest echelon of today’s performing artists.  Mr. Harrell’s half-century career has brought him to many leading orchestras including Boston, Chicago, New York, Philadelphia, San Francisco, Los Angeles, Detroit, Ottawa, Pittsburgh, and the National Symphony. In Europe, he partners with the orchestras of London, Munich, Leipzig , Berlin, Dresden, Leipzig, Zürich, and Tel Aviv. He has also performed extensively in Australia, New Zealand, Japan, Korea, Malaysia, Singapore, Taiwan, and Hong Kong. Among others, some esteemed conductor-collaborators throughout Mr. Harrell’s career include James Levine, Sir Neville Marriner, Kurt Masur, Zubin Mehta, André Previn, Sir Simon Rattle, Leonard Slatkin, Yuri Temirkanov, Michael Tilson Thomas, and David Zinman.  Mr. Harrell will be performing the romantic and passionate Herbert Cello Concerto No. 2; a work that inspired Dvorak to compose his own cello concerto. It will be paired with Dvorak’s delightful Rondo in G Minor for Cello and Orchestra. Also on the program is the powerful and majestic Symphony No. 3 by Brahms
