No chance of snoozing through the Fort Worth Symphony concert

Johannes Moser

The energy quotient was exceptionally high at Friday night’s concert of the Fort Worth Symphony Orchestra. A new piece from Colombia tested the sonic limits of Bass Hall, there were thunderous peals generated by Saint-Saëns’ “Organ Symphony,” and even the relatively more restrained Dvorak cello concerto was not lacking in forceful fortissimos. 
Overall, the most successful performance of a successful evening was that of Dvorak’s cello concerto. The soloist was Johannes Moser, a German-Canadian cellist remarkable for his precision, lyric gift and dramatic flair. A topnotch collaboration by Harth-Bedoya and the orchestra helped make this a winner.
