Nadja Salerno-Sonnenberg

Sunday, January 7, 7pm

Nadja Salerno-Sonnenberg opens our Classical Series, and will conduct the symphony while playing from the Concertmaster’s chair. The second half of the concert will feature Tchaikovsky Symphony No. 4, conducted by Maestro Andrew Kurtz. This tempestuous work mirrored the personal life of Tchaikovsky during its creation, and tackles the subjects of fate, jealousy, sadness, and ultimately, happiness and celebration.

About the Composer

Pyotr Ilyich Tchaikovsky

Composer Pyotr Ilyich Tchaikovsky was born on May 7, 1840, in Vyatka, Russia. His work was first publicly performed in 1865. In 1868, his First Symphony was well-received. In 1874, he established himself with Piano Concerto No.1 in B-flat Minor. Tchaikovsky resigned from the Moscow Conservatory in 1878, and spent the rest of his career composing yet more prolifically. He died in St. Petersburg on November 6, 1893.
