February 2022 Concert
Tchaikovsky’s Fourth Symphony is among his greatest works, and combines festive Russian folk tunes with a hidden program based upon Beethoven’s Fifth Symphony and the struggle against fate. This symphony is fittingly preceded by the sunny 23th piano concerto of Tchaikovsky’s favorite composer, Mozart, which features the ESO debut of rising star Hyejin Joo. William Grant Still was a pioneering African-American composer, and his Festive Overture was named the winner of a 1944 overture competition sponsored by the Cincinnati Symphony.
