Michael Tilson Thomas always delivers a great show. A challenging new (to me) composer (Ligeti) was rather difficult. The Tchaikovsky First was more reassuring. The orchestra is amazing how it meets all of these diverse calls on their musicianship.

Ligeti: Violin Concerto
Tchaikovsky: Symphony No. 1, Winter Daydreams
Representing the first large-scale work of Tchaikovsky’s career, the Symphony No. 1 pays homage to the sounds he experienced daily in his beloved Russia. Ligeti’s Violin Concerto, however, is a gripping work about loss, memory, and neglect. Tetzlaff displays a “rich, velvety tone and an irresistible sense of line” (The New York Times), and his performance will astound the listener with its virtuosity and boldness of sound.
