Tchaikovsky's Symphony No. 4: Oregon Symphony, Elina Vahala

NATHAN CARSON
8 pm., Monday December 09 | $27-$71.
 
[FATE’S ACCOMPLICE] Poor Pyotr Tchaikovsky was too Western for the Russians, too poetic for the rest of Europe and too conflicted with himself. But time has been kind to his legacy. His “Symphony No. 4” was the first from his later period, a dramatic and personal work with violent, crashing motives and an ambitiously lopsided structure—the first movement is roughly the length of the other three combined. Classical enthusiasts may know fate is a strong theme here, with an emphasis on hopelessness. Rock fans will recognize the snippet Pink Floyd ran through an AM radio filter at the start of “Wish You Were Here.” Also in the program are Prokofiev’s “The Love for Three Oranges” and a rendition of Magnus Lindberg’s Violin Concerto, featuring Elina Vahala.
