About

Tchaikovsky's Symphony No. 1, which the composer nicknamed "Winter Daydreams," evokes tranquil images of snowy landscapes and glowing fireplaces. NSO Concertmaster Nurit Bar-Josef plays both the beautifully meditative Sérénade mélancolique and technically demanding Valse-Scherzo. Plus, the composer takes inspiration from the Bard in his brooding Hamlet Fantasy-Overture. 

Part of the NSO celebration Fantasy & Fate: Tchaikovsky Masterworks

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.
