All Tchaikovsky

2:00 PM, Verizon Hall
Kensho Watanabe - Conductor
Edgar Moreau - Cello
Tchaikovsky - Capriccio italien
Tchaikovsky - Rococo Variations, for cello and orchestra
INTERMISSION -
Tchaikovsky - Symphony No. 1 ("Winter Daydreams")

The breadth and depth of Tchaikovsky's musical genius are on display in this dazzling celebration of his music, led by our dynamic Assistant Conductor Kensho Watanabe. Inspired by a trip to sunny Italy, Tchaikovsky transforms the sounds he heard all around him into a delightful “Italian Fantasia” (his original title for Capriccio italien). He turns to Mozart for inspiration in his Rococo Variations, the closest Tchaikovsky came to writing a cello concerto, performed by rising star Edgar Moreau.
