Music of Tchaikovsky & Jongen

February 27 - March 1 | 2020

Kirill Karabits CONDUCTS
Cameron Carpenter ORGAN


Symphonie concertante


Manfred Symphony

Inspired by Lord Byron’s “dramatic poem,” Tchaikovsky’s brooding Manfred Symphony portrays the solitary hero searching for peace and redemption. Through a rich orchestral palette, the audience enters the world of spirits — good ones with lustrous strings and demonic ones with a shattering Dies irae. Organ phenom Cameron Carpenter shows off the Lay Family Concert Organ with Jongen’s tour de force, requiring, as one commentator says, a soloist with “brawn, stamina and grace.”

“Extravagantly talented… the audience’s response was raucous… everything [Carpenter] touches turns fantastical and memorable…”
The New York Times
