Measha Brueggergosman - Soprano


Tilson Thomas - Four Preludes on Playthings of the Wind


Tchaikovsky - Symphony No. 6 ("Pathétique")

Thursday, March 1, 2018

7:30 pm Verizon Hall
Michael Tilson Thomas conducts his own thought-provoking meditation on civilizations and destiny. This work is presented in a uniquely theatrical style with a jazz band, lead singer, and two back-up vocalists. Soprano Measha Brueggergosman, who sang the world premiere, is our soloist. Inspired by American poet Carl Sandburg's text, his words are as relevant today as when they were written almost 100 years ago. Tchaikovsky's “Pathétique” Symphony shares a similar contrast of hope and devastation that is both thrilling and deeply introspective.

These concerts will be LiveNote enabled.
