Beginning with a seductive whisper from the strings, Wagner’s most powerful expression of love, torment and loss opens the concert with his operatic masterpiece; the Prelude and Liebestod from Tristan und Isolde.
There’s nothing hazy, however, about the restless and mysterious opening of Mendelssohn’s Violin Concerto. Journeying from darkness to light, this Concerto is rightly considered one of the greatest and will showcase the Orchestra’s Artist-in-Residence, Esther Yoo.
After a Beethoven-like struggle with Fate, Tchaikovsky’s volcanic Fourth Symphony launches into a whirlpool of emotions, concluding with a thrilling, life-affirming finale.
