Nathalie Stutzmann Conductor
Daniel Lozakovich Violin
Tchaikovsky Polonaise, from Eugene Onegin
Prokofiev Violin Concerto No. 2
Tchaikovsky Symphony No. 6 (“Pathétique”)
Pure Russian romance awaits with a bewitching Polonaise from Tchaikovsky’s most popular opera, and the Bravo! Vail debut of the “exceptional” (Le Figaro) violinist Daniel Lozakovich in Prokofiev’s enthralling Second Violin Concerto. Tchaikovsky himself conducted the premiere of his “Pathétique” Symphony just a week before his death. Sometimes described as his own personal requiem, it lives on as one of the composer’s most cherished creations.
