Seattle Symphony: Tchaikovsky Pathétique Symphony
- Jan Lisiecki, piano
Edvard Grieg — Piano Concerto in A minor, Op. 16
Pyotr Ilyich Tchaikovsky — Symphony No. 6 in B minor, Op. 74 "Pathétique"
Tchaikovsky’s "Pathétique" is a declaration of forbidden love shrouded in mystery. Grieg's Piano Concerto endures as a popular piece equally recognized for its use in TV and film as in the concert hall. Gabriella Smith’s Tidalwave Kitchen rounds out the program, creating an orchestral sound world that reflects the danger and beauty of nature.
