In the lush, lingering melodies, a certain Russian pathos never seems far away. Long snowy nights, tender childhood memories, glimpses of lost love and unspoken passion.

By turns virtuosic and intimate, passionate and lyrical, Tchaikovsky is the quintessential Romantic—conjuring powerful emotions with his heart on his sleeve. This program is a wonderful opportunity to hear the extraordinary talents of MCO’s string musicians at their best—with Tchaikovsky’s breathtaking showpiece for string orchestra, the Serenade for Strings, the charming Album for the Young and Souvenir d’un lieu cher, imaginative variations by Arensky and witty dances by Shostakovich.
