Symphony Silicon Valley opens 2019-2020 Season with Tchaikovsky, Oct 5-6 in San Jose

Carlos Vieu conducting

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.

 PROGRAM:

  • Zoltán Kodály: Variations on a Hungarian Theme – Peacock Variations
  • Pyotr Iliych Tchaikovsky: Symphony No. 6 – Pathétique

Conductor: Carlos Vieu
