Part of the NSO celebration Fantasy & Fate: Tchaikovsky Masterworks
Glenn Donnellan, NSO violin, on the program:
"I wore a hole in my old LP listening to Tchaikovsky's Sérénade mélancolique, and playing the piece as a youth gave me an outlet for my soul. It's the composer at his most poignant, paired with the voluptuous, vibrant sound of our concertmaster Nurit Bar-Josef. And the Valse-Scherzo: I grew up hearing this amazing showpiece on the broadcasts of the Tchaikovsky Violin Competition. I can't wait to hear Nurit own it!"
Performance Timing: Part One - 40 min.; Intermission - 15 min.; Part Two - 45 min.
AfterWords: Thu., Jan. 22 performance followed by a free discussion with the artists and NSO Director of Artistic Planning Nigel Boon.
