Long known as an established driving force in the creation of new cello repertoire for the 21st century, Inbal Segev makes her Dallas Symphony Orchestra debut this fall in the world premiere performances of Ukrainian composer Victoria Vita Polevá’s Concerto for Cello and Orchestra, led by conductor Kirill Karabits and co-commissioned by the orchestra (Nov 9, 11, 12), before reprising the work for its UK premiere with another co-commissioner, the London Philharmonic Orchestra led by Oksana Lyniv (Feb 9). 

Also highlighting Segev’s 2023-24 season are continued performances of Anna Clyne’s cello concerto DANCE. Segev commissioned the work after being introduced to Clyne by MacArthur Award-winning conductor Marin Alsop, with whom she reunites this season to perform the piece with both the São Paulo Symphony (Nov 2–5) – marking another debut for the cellist – and the Colorado Symphony (Feb 23–25). She also performs DANCE this season with the Bozeman Symphony led by Music Director Norman Huynh (Sep 23 & 24) and with Virginia’s Fairfax Symphony led by Music Director Christopher Zimmerman (May 18). Also this fall, Segev and her chamber ensemble, the Amerigo Trio, perform at Davidson College in North Carolina (Oct 13).  

Spring sees the cellist perform in the “Wonders We Carry Inside” Gala, an evening of music honoring the mystical beauty of Persian culture and the power of women to shape history both past and present, composed and curated by Iranian American composer Gity Razaz and featuring, along with Segev, kamancheh player Niloufar Shiri and musicians of the San Diego Symphony (March 20). Soon thereafter, she spends a week on the cello faculty at the Guadalajara International Music Festival (March 24–April 3). Finally, next June, Segev teams up with American conductor Garrett Keast and his chamber orchestra, BAAM (Berlin Academy of American Music), to record Avner Dorman’s cello concerto, commissioned by Segev in 2012, for Faroe Records.
