Description: Yoav Talmi, guest conductor Andrew Tyson, piano BORODIN Overture to Prince Igor CHOPIN Piano Concerto No. 2 TCHAIKOVSKY Symphony No. 6, “Pathétique” Passion and drama reign supreme in this concert with three Romantic-era works. Tchaikovsky considered the “Pathétique” Symphony his very best, stating he “loved it as I have never loved any of my other musical offspring.” Emerging pianist Andrew Tyson stars in Chopin’s Second Piano Concerto, a marvelous display of poetry and fireworks. The second movement gushes with Chopin’s unrequited love for a beautiful soprano while the finale invokes a vibrant mazurka of his native Poland. The overture from Prince Igor launches a procession of regal brass fanfares and king-sized thrills. Tickets from $25. For more information or tickets, please visit or call (816) 471-0400.
