Tchaikovsky drew inspiration from Shakespearean tragedies to create a pair of masterpieces. Hamlet captures the tension and conflict of the play, using powerful orchestration and dramatic contrasts. Romeo and Juliet pairs a brutally dramatic theme with his achingly beautiful love theme. Joshua Roman reprises his acclaimed performance of Bates' Cello Concerto that blends classical lyricism with blues, jazz elements, and techno rhythms. This is a must see program with virtuoso composers complemented by a riveting and brilliant guest artist.
