Masterworks 1: Tchasing Tchaikovsky
“Our season opens with a celebration of Tchaikovsky, a composer I have admired my entire life. Tchaikovsky brought his passion to every piece of music he wrote, and we will sample his genius in one glorious evening. You cannot help but be swept away by the romance of the timeless tale of Sleeping Beauty. Francesca da Rimini is a powerful tone poem from Dante’s Inferno. We end the evening with a favorite violin concerto, performed by one of America’s finest young soloists.” – Daniel Meyer
Jennifer Koh, violin
Named 2016 Musician of the Year by Musical America, Ms. Koh has already taken bows with the Chicago Symphony, New York Philharmonic, and Munich Philharmonic. Tonight she returns to Asheville to perform the Violin Concerto in D.
