November 20, 2022 @ 3:00 pm - 5:00 pm

Lucas Richman, conductor

Hidden gems from history combine with Tchaikovsky’s stirring Symphony No. 6 for a full program of Romantic-era passion

What’s Interesting About This Concert

  • Pianist Vijay Venkatesh makes his BSO debut, having recently recorded the piano music of Lucas Richman
  • Composer Augusta Holmès was a French/Irish contemporary of Tchaikovsky’s, and her music has only recently been re-discovered
  • Clara Schumann was one of the most celebrated pianists of the 19th century, though her own compositions were often overshadowed by those of her husband Robert Schumann
  • Tchaikovsky’s Symphony No. 6 is known as the “Pathétique Symphony”but in his native Russian the original sub-title meant “passionate”
