David Concertino for Trombone with the Chicago Philharmonic
October 6 @ 3:00 pm
Scott Speck conductor
Jeremy Moeller trombone
Pyotr Ilyich Tchaikovsky Symphony No. 6 in B Minor, Op. 74 (Pathétique)
Anna Clyne Masquerade
Ferdinand David Concertino for Trombone and Orchestra, Op. 4
Intense passion, playful joy, and violent despair are evoked in our sensational 30th season-opening concert. Tchaikovsky’s final symphony, the Pathétique, expresses the fiercely emotional struggle for survival and the melancholy lament of our ultimate destiny. In contrast, Anna Clyne’s Masquerade evokes a carnival atmosphere, where the streets and citizens come to life in celebration. Rounding out the program is Ferdinand David’s lyrical and triumphant Trombone Concertino, featuring trombonist and beloved member of the Chicago Philharmonic family Jeremy Moeller.
