Tchaikovsky 5 + World Premiere

Dive into the depths of Tchaikovsky’s Fifth, a sweeping musical cosmos filled with brooding darkness and aching beauty. The symphony’s colossal ending—replete with blazing brass fanfares and thunderous timpani—is guaranteed to leave you exhilarated. A not-to-be-missed evening also features the grand unveiling of Allen Shawn’s Oboe Concerto, an RPO-commissioned work that was written specifically for RPO Principal Oboe Erik Behr.
