Patrice Rushen: Color Express
Shostakovich: Piano Concerto No. 2
Tchaikovsky: Symphony No. 6 “Pathetique”
OPENING NIGHT. Charlie Albright returns to headline our season opener that features works by Shostakovich and Tchaikovsky. Patrice Rushen’s Color Express is dedicated to those who suffered hardship and loss due to COVID-19. Shostakovich’s Piano Concerto No. 2 deviates from the traditional Russian angst of his previous works with a freeing, whimsical charm. Tchaikovsky’s Symphony No. 6 is regarded as one of the defining works of his career and the Romantic era.
