Maestro Warren-Green opens the Classical Series with some of Tchaikovsky's greatest works. Tchaikovsky's exhilarating First Piano Concerto, instantly recognizable by its triumphant opening theme, is an essential work for any virtuosic pianist and is among the best known of all piano concertos. Tchaikovsky's Symphony No. 5 is a journey of haunting melodies, shocking climaxes, charming elegance, and joyful abandon.
Pianist Inon Barnatan, hailed by The New York Times as "One of the most admired pianists of his generation," joins your Charlotte Symphony for the sweeping melodies of Tchaikovsky's First Piano Concerto.
