Piotr Gajewski, conductor
This concert features the engaging and elegant violinist Chee-Yun and pairs two remarkable works for string orchestra. Composed in 1723, Vivaldi’s most famous work, The Four Seasons, is a set of four violin concertos, each depicting one of the seasons. Tchaikovsky’s perennially beloved Serenade for Strings, composed in 1880, stands as one of the Romantic era’s most admired works.
