Tchaikovsky - Symphony No. 5
Saturday, January 17, 2015
With the cold weather upon us, Glazunov’s “Winter” sets the stage for a journey to St. Petersburg. Yannick returns to lead The Philadelphia Orchestra in a three-week festival celebrating four great Russian masters. No matter how many times you’ve seen The Nutcracker, you won’t want to miss this rare opportunity to hear highlights from Tchaikovsky’s gorgeous score in all its glory with the Fabulous Philadelphians on stage. The Nutcracker premiered at the Mariinsky Theatre in St. Petersburg in 1892, four years after the tremendous Symphony No. 5 had its premiere with the composer conducting the St. Petersburg Philharmonic Society through every climax and waltz. This is quintessential Russian Romanticism, impeccably revealed by the Philadelphians.
