Symphony Silicon Valley opens 2019-2020 Season with Tchaikovsky, Oct 5-6 in San Jose
Symphony Silicon Valley’s season opens with a richly exotic, song-filled work by Zoltán Kodály. Based on a Hungarian folk tune, its variations set a festive mood. That mood shifts in the second half with Tchaikovsky’s deeply emotional final symphony. The composer heard only its first, poorly received performance; but its second was a triumph, and this symphony remains one of his most celebrated and beloved.
Conductor: Carlos Vieu
