Rafael Payare, conductor
Dorothea Röschmann, soprano

You’ll be moved by the exuberance of Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart’s Haffner Symphony and the romantic sweep of Gustav Mahler’s Rückert Songs (sung by Grammy® Award-winning German soprano Dorothea Röschmann). Then brace yourself for the pathbreaking work which took the symphony to new limits of expressive scope. Never before had the orchestra been used to make such a bold and daring statement as Ludwig van Beethoven’s “Heroic Symphony,” composed with the ideal of a hero in mind.

SCHUMANN: Overture to Manfred, Op. 115
BEETHOVEN: Piano Concerto No. 4 in G Major, Op. 58
TCHAIKOVSKY: Symphony No. 6 in B minor, Op. 74: Pathétique

Rafael Payare, conductor
Kirill Gerstein, piano

Passionate lyricism fills the air and melodies soar in some of the most heartfelt music ever written. Ludwig van Beethoven’s Fourth Piano Concerto is perhaps his most gentle and lyrical piece. Its premiere was also the composer’s final appearance as a concerto soloist — his encroaching deafness ensured that he would never again play with an orchestra. Piotr Tchaikovsky’s Pathétique Symphony shows the composer at his most vulnerable and emotional, with heartfelt pathos composed into every note.
