The Soul of Imperial Russia
A Legacy of Passion and Grandeur

Tchaikovsky
Dance of Jesters and Clowns
from “The Maid of Orleans”
Tchaikovsky
Concerto for Violin, Op. 35
Tchaikovsky
Symphony No. 6, Op. 74

Join us for a trio of Tchaikovsky masterworks. Russia’s musical voice—passionate and filled with yearning—is embodied in Tchaikovsky’s immortal 
Violin Concerto and his final work, the immortal Pathetique Symphony, each an iconic example of this powerful national style.

Young superstar violinist Joshua Brown, recently returned from the Tchaikovsky competition in Siberia, will bring the concerto to life with  his own unique brand of musical artistry.

For a welcome dose of comic relief, we will also perform the rollicking “Dance of the Jesters and Clowns” from Tchaikovsky’s opera The Maid of Orleans—another NSO rare gem whose unbridled energy will leave  you breathless.
