When isn’t Tchaikovsky a healing balm for the soul?! After nearly two years of the Covid scourge, this beloved composer promises to rekindle your spirits with the emotions of his haunting Sixth Symphony. Popular guest artist and principal cello of the Cleveland Orchestra, Mark Kosower returns for Shostakovich’s masterpiece. A bravura showcase for the soloist, it encompasses a sardonic march, gorgeous lyrical melodies, a demanding, meditative cadenza, and a high-voltage finale. Jennifer Jolley’s Blue Glacier Decoy, inspired by a dance piece that evokes Pacific Northwest landscapes, includes the soothing recorded voice of dancer and choreographer Trisha Brown, urging us to find renewed balance in our lives.
