March 9-10
Tchaikovsky's Fourth Symphony
Uihlein Hall, Marcus Center, 929 N. Water St.

Even for a composer as heart-on-your-sleeve emotional as Peter Tchaikovsky, his Symphony No. 4 in F Minor, Op. 36 (1878) stands out for its wrenching emotionalism. At turns, it is wildly extroverted, thunderously bombastic, resigned and melancholy. Finnish composer Jean Sibelius brought his intimate knowledge of the violin to bear in what was to be his only venture into the concerto genre, his Violin Concerto in D Minor, Op. 47 (1905). Jun Märkl conducts the orchestra and violinist Caroline Goulding is the soloist for Sibelius.
