Auburn Symphony is pleased to present a program featuring composers from around the world. Piotr Tchaikovsky’s Symphony No. 6, commonly titled Pathétique, is one of the most compelling musical portraits of the human condition. Tchaikovsky made this statement about the symphony, “Without exaggeration, I have put my whole soul into this work.” From brooding to melancholic and feverish to ecstatic, this Symphony is a journey through all the emotions we feel as humans. Experience what it is like to let this music wash over and through you. 

ASO is also pleased to present on this program Folk Songs for Orchestra by Chinese composer Huang Ruo as well as Bulgarian-born violinist Bella Hristova performing Florence Price’s vivacious Violin Concerto No. 1. Hristova nas been praised for her “expressive nuance and a rich tone” (New York Times) and “impressive power and control” (Washington Post), Hristova is the recipient of the prestigious Avery Fisher Career Grant and numerous awards including First Prize in the Young Concert Artists International Auditions, and First Prize in the Michael Hill International Violin Competition.

Gwynne Kuhner Brown, Professor of Music at the University of Puget Sound, will discuss the music before the concert at 1:30 PM.
