Join us in January as we delve into the Russian soul with the Erie Philharmonic.

We bookend our concert with music from one of the masterpieces for string orchestra, Tchaikovsky’s Serenade for Strings. From his elegant Viennese-style waltz to a roaring folk dance, the Serenade is a synthesis of folk and art traditions that made Tchaikovsky such an intriguing and inspiring figure. The principals of the Philharmonic’s string section take center stage in a performance of Borodin’s touching Nocturne from his String Quartet No. 2, and Stravinsky is represented in music from his 1928 neo-classical ballet Apollo. We also perform contemporary music of Russian-born Lera Auerbach, in a tragic but illuminating string symphony aptly titled ‘Memoria de la luz’.
