Hans Graf and Leonidas Kavakos are great friends whose partnership has produced great music-making on the Jones Hall stage and around the world. They'll join together once more to perform Shostakovich's 1st Violin Concerto. Plus, hear Tchaikovsky's Pathétique Symphony.
The nickname "Pathétique" actually means "passionate" rather than "pitiful," and Tchaikovsky's final symphony is packed with passion. You'll feel the power of fate in both life and death as you get caught up in the music's sweep of emotion, complete with gorgeous violin melodies and blazing brass.
Shostakovich: Violin Concerto No. 1
Tchaikovsky: Symphony No. 6, Pathétique
Hans Graf, conductor
Leonidas Kavakos, violin
