Tchaikovsky to Yoshimatsu: Across the Decades

Classical Concert
Saturday Mar 24th, 2018 7:30 PM – 10:00 PM

Spanning more than a century, the three compositions being presented provide a solid base of classicalism with a dash of more contemporary flair.

  • Tchaikovsky’s popular Symphony No. 5 is one of the most emotionally vivid trips Tchaikovsky ever took the audience on, featuring the ultimate happy end when the meloncholic opening theme returns triumphant in the grand Finale. 
  • The 19th C master of French humor scandalized the political and musical establishment when he depicted Hades as a fun place by inserting the Can-Can into the underworld proceedings in his overture to Orpheus in the Underworld…Hades never had it so good!
  • SSO audience favorite, Principal Trombone Brian Diehl takes the audience on a trip into the unknown and everything along the way with Japanese composer, Yoshimatsu’s Orion Machine for Trombone and orchestra featuring music influenced by virtually every musical style under the stars: jazz, rock, classical, aleatoric just to name a few.
