ALEXANDRE KONSTANTINOVITCH GLAZOUNOV
From the Middle Ages, Op. 79

PIOTR ILITCH TCHAÏKOVSKI
Violin Concerto in D Major, Op. 35
Souvenir d’un lieu cher, Op. 42

The evening begins with a rare treat: the Prelude from Glazunov’s 1902 orchestral suite From the Middle Ages. Evoking medieval Europe through orchestral music on an operatic scale, the suite portrays a passionate young couple, blissfully ignorant of the furious storm that surrounds them. The brilliant violinist Janine Jansen then takes the stage to perform Tchaikovsky’s beloved Violin Concerto in D Major, one of the most beautiful and technically-challenging of the genre. Despite the concerto’s success, Tchaikovsky never wrote another work of its kind.
