Masterworks 4: Music Director Finalist Cheung Chau
Part of the 2016-2017 Charlottesville Symphony at the University of Virginia season

Who can resist the seductive sway of Ravel’s Bolero? His crowd-pleasing tour de force for orchestra ushers in a treasure by Germany’s most over-the-top Romantic. Schumann’s late Cello Concerto receives a rare and welcome performance. But no one wore his heart on his sleeve more openly than Tchaikovsky. The Pathétique Symphony was his swan song: he died tragically two weeks after its premiere.

Masterworks 5: Kate Tamarkin - The Farewell Concerts
Part of the 2016-2017 Charlottesville Symphony at the University of Virginia season

Wagner’s sole comic opera has plenty of pomp and circumstance. That makes his Overture to Die Meistersinger a fitting companion to Sir Edward Elgar’s orchestral masterpiece, the Enigma Variations. Elgar’s appealing character sketches memorialize friends and family, highlighted by the immortal Nimrod Variation. Between Wagner and Elgar, we hear Beethoven’s most poetic and spellbinding piano concerto: a winning combination!
