About

A grand Russian music drama to rival the literature of Pushkin and Tolstoy, Tchaikovsky's Symphony No. 4 makes instruments speak with the theatrical vividness of characters in a play or novel. Rising star Arabella Steinbacher--praised for her "balanced lyricism and fire" (New York Times)--joins the NSO for the virtuosic Violin Concerto, known for its fiendishly challenging solo passages. And the composer waxes on the power of destiny in his tone poem Fate.

Part of the NSO celebration Fantasy & Fate: Tchaikovsky Masterworks

Glenn Donnellan, NSO violin, on the program:
"It doesn't get any better for Tchaikovsky lovers than this: perhaps the most exciting Violin Concerto ever, paired with Tchaikovsky's 4th, one of the grand slams of symphonies. Get ready to be out of your seat a lot, because this concert will be full of standing ovations! Arabella Steinbacher played Mozart on the NSO's recent European tour, and we fell in love with her playing."

Performance Timing: Part One - 45 min.; Intermission - 15 min.; Part Two - 45 min.

Note: Following the concerts on Thursday, Jan. 29 and Saturday, Jan. 31, Arabella Steinbacher will sign CDs in the Grand Foyer outside of the Concert Hall.
