TCHAIKOVSKY'S SYMPHONY No. 6

Friday, June 30, 2017 at 8:00 P.M.
CBC Glenn Gould Studio
250 Front St. West., Toronto ON M5V 3G5

The Kindred Spirits Orchestra returns to the CBC Glenn Gould Studio for a special concert featuring renowned European conductor Maestro Romeo Rimbu and the brilliant Canadian violinist Aaron Schwebel. Written years after the original opera’s fruition, Verdi’s Overture to La forza del destino is a gripping and illustrative prelude that is recurrently performed autonomously in concert halls. Composed during the turbulent years of the early twentieth century, Prokofiev’s output was the most prolific as he penned his wildly dreamy and spirited Concerto No. 1 for Violin and Orchestra. Premiered only days before Tchaikovsky’s sudden death, makes his final Symphony No. 6 “Pathétique”, a truly desperately mournful yet awe-inspiring requiem.
