French Glitz And Russian Drama
Taking themes from the opera Benvenuto Cellini, a glitzy, splashy Berlioz overture leads off the program. After the break, the powerful and brooding Symphony No. 4 of Tchaikovsky— his first breakout symphonic work of the later style.
Hector Berlioz overture Le carnaval romain Op. 9; Carlos Miguel Prieto, conducting
Piotr Ilych Tchaikovsky Symphony No. 4 in F minor Op. 36; Ryan McAdams, conducting
