Tchaikovsky Symphony No. 4
New Orleans | Orpheum Theater
Two pieces by Ralph Vaughan Williams begin the program, Hymn Tune Prelude on Song 13 and Two Hymn-tune Preludes. Violist Nadia Sirota joins the LPO to perform Nico Muhly’s Viola Concerto, a piece composed specifically for her. Composed for his patroness, Nedezhda von Meck, Tchaikovsky’s Fourth Symphony is a larger metaphor for the inevitability of fate, and, as fate would have it, ends the program.
