Tchaikovsky ‘Pathétique’ Symphony

January 21–22
Benaroya Hall

Seattle Symphony

Without exaggeration, Tchaikovsky wrote about his sixth and final symphony, “I have put my whole soul into this work.” Visceral and impassioned, this defining work of the Romantic era is an emotional tour de force.Encompassing a lifetime of emotions within a single symphony, the Pathétique files to euphoric highs, dives to depths of utter despair, and visits every emotion between—promising an edge-of-your-seat experience for anyone within earshot. Plus, the Symphony’s principal wind players take center stage in Mozart’s Sinfonia concertante and composer Jörg Widmann offers a modern take on the concert overture.
