Special 90th Anniversary Concert

May 14 @ 7:30 pm

“The Fantastic Symphony”

Symphonie Fantastique is a response to unrequited love. And, what a response! Completed and first performed in 1830, only three years after the death Beethoven, this inspired work of genius by Hector Berlioz is by turns sublime and insane. Just the orchestration alone is worth noting – multiple timpanists and two ophicleides (tubas)!? This work is still riveting to hear and to perform. The Orchestra will be featured brilliantly in this virtuosic show piece.

Tchaikovsky’s first piano concerto became an instant success and a part of the orchestral canon for good reason. It is the quintessential romantic work. We welcome rising international star Australian pianist David Fung to Racine for the first time. Lauded for performances described as “ravishing and simply gorgeous” in The Washington Post, Mr. Fung is an artist of uncommon grace and intelligence.
