 For the first time since 2017, cellist Yo-Yo Ma s returning to the Saratoga Performing Arts Center with a program that opens with the “Ária” from Villa-Lobos’s Bachianas brasileiras No. 5, a delightful blend of Brazilian folk tunes and Bach-inspired chamber music.

Following is Saint-Saëns’s sparkling First Cello Concerto, one of the greatest and most technically challenging cello pieces ever written, in the masterful hands of Yo-Yo Ma. The evening closes with Rimsky-Korsakov’s sweeping Sheherazade—core Russian Romantic repertoire seemingly invented to showcase the Philadelphia Sound.

Located in Saratoga Springs, the Saratoga Performing Arts Center is a large amphitheater that is perfect for a summer concert.
