San Francisco Symphony
Tchaikovsky: _Romeo and Juliet Fantasy-Overture _
Tchaikovsky: Variations on a Rococo Theme for Cello and Orchestra
Tchaikovsky: Symphony No. 4
Intensity. Passion. Beauty. Drama. Listeners will be treated to all these and more in this showcase of Tchaikovsky’s music. Opening the program is the heart-wrenching Romeo and Juliet Fantasy-Overture, which is surely the very sound of longing. The elegant Variations on a Rococo Theme for Cello and Orchestra reveals a more reserved Tchaikovsky, while the Fourth Symphony is Tchaikovsky at his most forceful, where his internal torment finally surges into his music.
