“The double-bass world could use Xavier Foley. At 21, he’s a standout player .... But he’s also a right spark of a composer, and, to judge from the premiere of his ‘Zalistar’ Trio, a musician who hears borders between styles as limitation best ignored.”
— Peter Dobrin, The Philadelphia Inquirer

Conductor Mei-Ann Chen returns to Santa Fe for this concert of orchestral music by Jennifer Higdon, Osvaldo Golijov, and Dvořák, and a new concerto written by and starring double bass player Xavier Foley.

Stefan M. Dettlinger of Mannheimer Morgen describes Mei-Ann Chen: “Her conducting has magical effects on the elasticity and flexibility of the overall sound, which springs, breathes and expresses itself.”
