BEETHOVEN Concerto for Violin, Cello, and Piano in C Major; “Triple”
TCHAIKOVSKY Symphony No. 4
Tchaikovsky’s blazing Fourth Symphony was composed in direct response to Beethoven’s Fifth. His battles with fate are vividly realized in dreamlike, lyrical passages punctuated with cosmic joy and dramatic spectacle. Beethoven’s “Triple” Concerto features the intertwining melodies of Concertmaster Jonathan Sturm and Principal Cellist Julie Sturm along with pianist Nicholas Roth. But first, the Orchestra plays Pulitzer Prize-winning African-American composer George Walker’s serene Lyric for Strings.
