ABOUT THIS CONCERT

“I have put my whole soul into this work…” –Tchaikovsky

Tchaikovsky’s ardent, deeply felt final Symphony awakens us to a universe of emotion, from wild euphoria to desolate caverns of despair. Get ready for a visceral, edge-of-your-seat experience when the Houston Symphony performs this unforgettable masterwork, known for its haunting conclusion that fades to black. Pristine, ethereal beauty meets frenetic energy in Shostakovich’s razor-sharp concerto, featuring unparalleled superstar Vadim Gluzman.

Pre-Concert Activities: Attend the Prelude pre-concert discussion, held 45 minutes prior to each Classical concert. Prelude is led by our Musical Ambassador Carlos Andrés Botero, and sometimes features guest artists or orchestra members.
