Symphony No. 6, Tchaikovsky
Program Notes

Tchaikovsky Pathétique

1:30 PM
Friday, May 2, 2014

Tchaikovsky’s haunting Pathétique heads a program of some of the most affecting and heart-felt music ever composed. Beethoven’s Third Concerto, played by critically acclaimed British pianist Paul Lewis, shows the first ripening of his distinctive brand of lyricism, most ravishingly in its central slow movement. Lutoslawski found an outlet to express his grief and suffering under Polish communist oppression in his Funeral Music, dedicated to the memory of Bartók.

This event has LIMITED AVAILABILITY. Please call 312-294-3000 for returned ticket availability and additional seating options.

Postconcert CD signings with Paul Lewis on Friday May 2 and Saturday May 3 will take place in Grainger Ballroom.
