Mendelssohn | Symphony No. 4, “Italian”
Elgar | Serenade for Strings in E Minor
Tchaikovsky | Piano Concerto No. 1; Paul Carlson, piano
Mendelssohn’s boisterous “Italian” Symphony No. 4 kicks off the evening, followed by English composer Sir Edward Elgar’s poignant and romantic Serenade for Strings. Our own wonderful pianist, Paul Carlson, offers up one of the most beloved Russian piano concertos of all time for the final course: Tchaikovsky’s Piano Concerto No. 1 features high drama and soaring melodies, ingredients Tchaikovsky uses well.
