Zemlinsky Six Songs, Op. 13
Tchaikovsky Symphony No. 6 in B minor, ‘Pathétique’
Omer Meir Wellber conducts our last concert of 2022. Reflecting on a range of emotions, he builds from the tender intimacy of Schnittke’s Trio in which he plays piano, to the fantastical reflections of Maurice Maeterlinck’s poetry set hauntingly by Zemlinsky. In the very heat of passion, Tchaikovsky pours out his soul in a stream of entrancing melodies in his Sixth Symphony, the Pathetique – music he was most thrilled to compose.
