LACOMBE & GLUZMAN
What’s the story? These three works tell tales of love and loss through music. Berlioz’s lighthearted overture was inspired by Shakespeare’s Much Ado About Nothing. Bernstein reached back to Plato’s Symposium—a wine-fueled discussion of love—for his tuneful Serenade, with a luscious role for soloist Gluzman. Fate, symbolized by a foreboding fanfare, is the theme of Tchaikovsky’s turbulent Fourth.
