Passions run high in our first Sunday afternoon concert of the season. Tchaikovsky’s Shakespeare-inspired overture depicts both a storm at sea and youthful romance with equal abandon, while his Pathétique Symphony plunges us into the depths of despair even as it soars to heights of musical intensity. Has true anguish ever sounded so ravishing? And at the heart of the concert, melancholic songs of beauty and longing from a composer who was anything but a stiff old Edwardian gent, sung here by the great Scottish mezzo-soprano Karen Cargill.
