For the first time, Emerald City Music presents a chamber orchestra on our stage! The evening features Tchaikovsky's capricious and whimsical Pezzo Capriccioso; a work written over a single week as the composer was preoccupied with the illness of his close friend. Cliburn gold-medal pianist Yekwon Sunwoo joins the orchestra for Chopin's Piano Concerto No. 2. The young 19-year-old Chopin wrote this lyrical work – with its romantic and soaring melodic passages – as an homage to his Warsaw School muse, Polish soprano Konstancja Gładkowska. Closing the evening is the soul-stirring cello melodies in Tchaikovsky’s timeless Serenade, a piece the composer wrote "by the impulse of an intimate conviction... a piece that comes from the bottom of my heart."
