Tchaikovsky — Symphony No. 6, “Pathétique”

Artistic Partner James Ehnes returns for his second Masterworks performance of the season, joining the orchestra under the baton of venerated guest conductor Robert Spano to present a true feast for classical music lovers. The program commences with Debussy’s Prelude to the Afternoon of a Faun, an intimate and ethereal work with a dreamy, sensual soundscape, followed by Saint-Saëns’ spellbinding Violin Concerto No. 3, featuring James as soloist. The program culminates with Tchaikovsky’s monumental “Pathétique” Symphony, abounding in sweeping emotional depth and profound beauty, offering a window into the composer’s innermost feelings of despair and longing shortly before the end of his life.

Prelude at 7pm
Join the conductor before the performance for an insightful 30-minute prelude discussion about the program.
