NightCap: Souvenir de Florence

Join us for late night post-concert chamber music performed in the intimate setting of the Target Atrium offering audiences another way to connect with the music performed on the main stage.

Florence was one of Tchaikovsky's favorite vacation spots. For many of his Florentine sojourns, he stayed at a small villa owned by Nadezhda von Meck, his generous benefactress and confidante whom Tchaikovsky, as a condition of their unusual relationship, was never to meet. Tchaikovsky used his peaceful escapes to sketch, orchestrate and relax.

This string sextet will have you swooning to the slow movement and dancing wildly to the gypsy music in the last movement. The performance time is approximately 35 minutes, plus a brief introduction. Violists Ken Freed and Sam Bergman will also host a Q&A after the performance. Seating is limited.
