Music Director Sebastian Lang-Lessing pairs two of the most emotional works of the Romantic era to create a program that will tug at your heartstrings. Both works are the final compositions of these 19th century masters.

Tchaikovsky’s sixth symphony was premiered by the composer as conductor just nine days before his death. The title Pathétique means “passionate,” and the final movement is an adagio of enormous emotional impact. Tchaikovsky said it was an image of musical, emotional, and physical collapse. One of the most remarkable endings for a 19th century symphony, it completes the fate obsession in Tchaikovsky’s fourth and fifth symphonies.

In Wagner’s last opera, Parsifal, the young Knight of the Grail is on a heroic quest searching for compassion and redemption. It contains music of rapt beauty, expressing repentance and transfiguration.
