Best of Tchaikovsky
Laura Pettigrew: Sesquie for Canada 150
Melody, colour, and emotions of all kinds rule at this all-Tchaikovsky extravaganza, conducted by Canadian Keri-Lynn Wilson. Though it begins in gloom, the Fifth Symphony rises to the shining heights of victory. The TSO’s outstanding Principal Cello performs the rarely heard—and superior—original version of the composer’s elegant Rococo Variations.
Concert running time is approximately two hours including a 20-minute intermission.
