One of classical music’s enduring favorites, Tchaikovsky’s “Pathétique” is a musical representation of the composer’s private struggles, including his failing health and his difficult personal life: “Without exaggeration,” he wrote, “I have put my whole soul into this work.”

Known for her poetic elegance and expressive nuance, Yeol Eum Son delights in Mozart’s Piano Concerto No. 21, featured in the 1967 Swedish film Elvira Madigan.

With Image Magnification (IMAG) on the big screen for a closer look at the guest artist, conductor and orchestra musicians!

Best availability and pricing on Friday night. Prefer a matinee? Tchaikovsky's Symphony No. 6 will also be performed on Sunday at 3 p.m. Learn more.
