Louis Langrée, conductor
Truls Mørk, cello
Emily Cooley: World Premiere
Shostakovich: Cello Concerto No. 1
Tchaikovsky: Symphony No. 6, Pathétique
Music can give voice to emotions that otherwise cannot be expressed. This is true for composers like Tchaikovsky, whose heartbreaking Pathétique Symphony suggests his inner turmoil, and Shostakovich, whose music signals triumph over oppression. As part of our annual One City, One Symphony initiative, we welcome the inimitable cellist Truls Mørk and feature a world premiere by composer Emily Cooley for an evening honoring the visionaries who use music to Speak Truth.
