Yannick Conducts Tchaikovsky

at Verizon Hall
March 14th and 16th, 2019
MUHLY  Organ Concerto
TCHAIKOVSKY  Manfred Symphony
    
Soloist James McVinnie cut his teeth in the great British cathedrals (he played for William and Kate’s wedding at Westminster Abbey) and consistently wows the critics (“musically and technically immaculate”— Los Angeles Times). He joins the Orchestra in the East Coast premiere of Nico Muhly’s Organ Concerto, a co-commission with the Los Angeles Philharmonic. In McVinnie’s hands, hear the Fred J. Cooper Memorial Organ in all its glory. Also on the program, Tchaikovsky’s Manfred Symphony, written between his Fourth and Fifth symphonies and based on a poem by Lord Byron.
