Tchaikovsky Symphony No. 5New! Saturday 7 p.m. start time
Fri Mar 8 — Sat Mar 9, 2024
Peter Ilyich Tchaikovsky had myriad emotions as he embarked on his fantastic Fifth Symphony, as did Arnold Schoenberg as he worked on Erwartung, writing that “It is impossible for a person to have only one sensation at a time...one has thousands simultaneously.” Join the Minnesota Orchestra and South Korean conductor Eun Sun Kim for an intimate journey of twists and turns, through anticipation, serendipity and, ultimately, fate—in a program that opens with a work by Minnesota Orchestra Composer Institute alumnus Texu Kim.
