Symphony Spring Concert featuring Tchaikovsky's Symphony No. 5

Saturday, June 6, 2015
8 p.m. Harman Hall
, Performing Arts Center

In May 1888, after an exhausting conducting tour in Western Europe, Pyotr Ilych Tchaikovsky felt played out. As he recuperated in Frolovskoye, a beautiful little town in the countryside, he wrote to his patron, Nadezhda von Meck, “I am dreadfully anxious to prove not only to others, but also to myself, that I am not yet played out as a composer.”

A few months later, his 5th symphony was complete and he had proven to himself, and to the world, that he was capable of crafting a monumental work that is as emotionally powerful as it is musically unified. Played out indeed!

Our final concert will also feature faculty flutist Suzanne Duffy. Currently principal flute for Symphony of the Vines and second flute/piccolo for Opera Santa Barbara, she has performed with Opera San Luis Obispo, the Palm Beach Opera, Santa Barbara Symphony, Florida Philharmonic, and the New World and Indianapolis Symphonies, among others.

  • Charles Griffes’ “Poem for Flute and Orchestra,” with faculty soloist Suzanne Duffy
  • Tchaikovsky’s Symphony No. 5 in E Minor, Op. 64
