EVOLUTION | OCTOBER 15, 2017

Tchaikovsky – The Tempest
Chopin – Piano Concerto No. 1
Mozart – Symphony No. 39

Cecile Licad takes the stage performing Chopin Piano Concerto No. 1, a lush and romantic work composed in his teens. Tchaikovsky’s The Tempest begins with a storm like none before, its rage clearing the seas and stage for the plot to unfold. Mozart’s Symphony No. 39, the first of his final Symphonies, closes the program.

 

REVOLUTION | JANUARY 28, 2018

Tchaikovsky – Romeo and Juliet
Shostakovich – Piano Concerto No. 1
Mozart – Symphony No. 40

Our second concert is filled with the drama of opposing forces. Maestro Taddei showcases Mozart’s grandest Symphony, the Great G minor. Cecile Licad plays Shostakovich's Piano Concerto No. 1, composed in the wake of censure from the hostile Soviet government. And finally, the most famous love story ever written, Romeo & Juliet, is heartbreakingly spun through Tchaikovsky’s masterful lyricism.  

RESOLUTION | APRIL 15, 2018

Tchaikovsky – Hamlet
Saint-Saëns – Piano Concerto No. 2
Mozart – Symphony No. 41, Jupiter

Our season concludes with Cecile Licad’s performance of Saint-Saëns’s lush Piano Concerto No. 2. Mozart’s symphonic career ends spectacularly with the grand Jupiter, Symphony No. 41. Tchaikovsky’s final and most difficult tone poem, Hamlet, resolves in the drama of a monarchy come to an end.
