XIAN ZHANG conductor
SIMON TRPČESKI piano
NEW JERSEY SYMPHONY ORCHESTRA
Don’t miss this! Xian Zhang arrives with a bouquet of Tchaikovsky scores, sure to showcase her “dynamic presence” (The Cincinnati Enquirer) and the Orchestra’s artistry.
TCHAIKOVSKY Polonaise from Eugene Onegin
Darker currents lie beneath the surface of this charming dance.
TCHAIKOVSKY Piano Concerto No. 1
Russian and Ukrainian folk songs lend a dash of Slavic soul to this hugely popular concerto. Majestic, with flashes of triumphant energy.
TCHAIKOVSKY Symphony No. 5
Regally tempestuous. Tchaikovsky considered it a failure, but history has judged it a masterpiece.
