NEW JERSEY SYMPHONY ORCHESTRA
This year’s Winter Festival stars multiple Grammy-winning maestro/violinist Pinchas Zukerman. He captivates with both bow and baton in this richly melodic program.
TCHAIKOVSKY “Melodie” from Souvenir d’un Lieu Cher
Lyrical and sentimental, recalling the beauty of the “cherished place” where Tchaikovsky wrote it.
TCHAIKOVSKY Sérénade Mélancolique
Tchaikovsky places a soulfully yearning violin tune in a burnished orchestral frame.
TCHAIKOVSKY Serenade for Strings
A lively homage to Mozart, yet unmistakably Russian.
MENDELSSOHN Symphony No. 4, “Italian”
Despite its great popularity, Mendelssohn couldn’t resist tinkering with this exuberant piece—he revised it twice.
