ASO River Rhapsodies Tonight: Artist of Distinction Inbal Segev

Inbal Segev, celloThe Arkansas Symphony Orchestra River Rhapsodies concert series continues tonight with cellist Inbal Segev.

The concert takes place at 7pm at the Clinton Presidential Center. A limited number of tickets are available at the door. But the concerts usually sell out.

The program includes:

Prokofiev – String Quartet No. 1 in B minor, Op. 50
Villa Lobos – Bachianas Brasileiras No. 1
Enescu – Octet in C Major, Op. 7

Israeli-American cellist Inbal Segev’s playing has been described as “characterized by a strong and warm tone . . . delivered with impressive fluency and style,” by The Strad and “richly inspired” by Gramophone. Equally committed to new repertoire and known masterworks, Segev brings interpretations that are both unreservedly natural and insightful to the vast range of music that she performs.
