Beginning Thursday through Sunday, Nina Kotova will sit in with the Dallas Symphony Orchestra, as the acclaimed Russian cellist makes her Texas Instruments Classical Series bow. Hers is a particularly special debut in Dallas, as the occasional University of Texas at Austin visiting artist, former Charlie Rose guest and one-time model will world-premiere "Cello Concerto" penned by her good friend and 41-year-old Dallas native Christopher Theofanidis -- a piece she commissioned, matter of fact. The classical-music blog Sequenza21 today features an audio interview with Kotova, who talks about the long-distance collaboration that's been a work in progress for two years.
