Tchaikovsky Symphony No. 5 in E minor, Op. 64, TH 29
“I’ll never forget the comfort I found in Tchaikovsky’s Fifth as an emotional and artistic teenager. It understands loss and struggles, but also gentleness, desire, courage, hope and light. With ever more melodies, it is a symphony that belongs to all of us who strive, and it still always fills me with joy and optimism. This will be the first time I share this very special and private symphony with our HSO audience. Our night of indulgence will also include Rachmaninoff’s Piano Concerto No. 3. Loved by virtuosic pianists, it is one of the most technically demanding, and most electrifying, of all Romantic concertos. Its raw emotional power intensified the Oscar-winning film Shine.” – Carolyn Kuan
