South Florida Symphony Presents Tchaikovsky & Gottsch World PremierWed 1/19 - Sat 1/22
South Florida Symphony Orchestra rings in 2022 with an evening of Russian grandeur, with works by Tchaikovsky and Gottsch. In the last year of his life, Tchaikovsky composed his haunting Sixth Symphony. He called it “The Passionate Symphony,” using the equivalent Russian word, which the French then mistranslated into “Pathetique” (meaning “evoking pity”) after his death.
Also on the program is a World Premiere by SFSO Composer-in-Residence, John Gottsch. "Princess Yurievskaya" charts the passionate love of Catherine Dolgorukova and Tsar Alexander II — from their first meeting and eventual marriage to his assassination. This vivid narrative is full of exciting dances and torrid romance, irradiated with evocative orchestral solos.
Tickets from just $15 are on sale now.
