Louis Conducts Tchaikovsky
Skip the mall for Music Hall this Thanksgiving weekend, and bring the family to this incredible all-Tchaikovsky program featuring the CSO debut of pianist Alexander Gavrylyuk, whose “blow-your-socks-off virtuosity is complemented with a dark, intense, ferociously concentrated essence and nature” (Gramophone). He’ll perform Tchaikovsky’s Piano Concerto No. 1, a towering masterwork of the Russian romantic literature and one of the best loved piano concertos of all time. Also hear the magnificent Symphony No. 5, in which Tchaikovsky’s greatest talent, his gift for melody, pervades every measure.
