Tchaikovsky and Beethoven
Friday, June 27, 2014
Join the Chicago Symphony Orchestra on the concert lawn at The Morton Arboretum for an evening of enchanting symphonic music. Mendelssohn’s evocative overture inspired by the famous Fingal’s Cave in the Scottish Hebrides opens this program, followed by Tchaikovsky’s sweeping and impassioned depiction of the tragic lovers from Shakespeare’s Romeo and Juliet. Among Beethoven’s liveliest works, the Seventh Symphony culminates in a rollicking, vivacious fourth movement that will bring this concert to a thrilling conclusion.
