CLASSICS: TCHAIKOVSKY VIOLIN CONCERTO

Saturday, January 13, 2018 @ 8:00 pm

SAT 13 JAN :: This concert features two masterpieces of radiant beauty and a contemporary work that is bright and bustling with “bittersweet humanity” according to the composer. Finnish composer Jean Sibelius thought of his Symphony No. 7 as a “symphonic fantasy” and uses a theme he called “Where the Stars Dwell” that he repurposed from a tone poem that he never completed.  Tchaikovsky’s disastrous one-year marriage produced an extraordinary result, a violin concerto of remarkable beauty with both tenderness and fire.

Violinist Gabriel Lefkowitz joined the Louisville Orchestra as concertmaster (principal first violin) in 2016 and this marks his first major solo concerto performance in Louisville.
