ROSSINI Barber of Seville Overture
MOZART Violin Concerto No. 5 in A Major
TCHAIKOVSKY Symphony No. 2 in C minor “Little Russian”
Tchaikovsky wrote his Second Symphony while on a holiday in Ukraine, a country from which he drew great inspiration. The shortest of his symphonies, he incorporated several Ukrainian folksongs into the work, including “Down By Mother Volga” and “The Crane.” After a successful premiere, Tchaikovsky was unhappy with the first three movements and revised them extensively over a period of just a few days. This revised version is the one performed most often today. Mozart wrote five violin concertos in 1775 when he was just 19 years old. In the 5th, he experimented with fluctuating tempos, changing meters, and unexpected modulations, producing a refined and elegant work. Julian Rhee is the winner of the 2020 Elmar Oliveira International Violin Competition. The Barber of Seville, one of the most popular operas of all time, premiered in 1816. Rossini assembled the now famous overture out of fragments of two of his earlier operas.
