PROGRAM
Michael Torke – Adjustable Wrench
Weill – Violin Concerto
Bernstein – Symphony No. 3, “Kaddish”

PERFORMERS
Nashville Symphony | Giancarlo Guerrero
, conductor | Nashville Symphony Chorus | Tucker Biddlecombe, chorus director | Blair Children’s Chorus | Mary Biddlecombe, artistic director | Jun Iwasaki, violin | Mary Wilson, soprano | Laila Robins, speaker

Dedicated to the memory of John F. Kennedy, Bernstein’s Symphony No. 3 incorporates the Jewish prayer of mourning, the Kaddish. More than five decades after its premiere, it remains a powerfully moving exploration of human spirituality and a transcendent plea for peace – all brought vividly to life by Maestro Giancarlo Guerrero, full orchestra, adult chorus, children’s chorus, soprano and narrator.

Like Bernstein, Kurt Weill may be best known as a composer for the theater, and his Violin Concerto likewise showcases his unique sensibilities as a composer for the concert stage. Nashville Symphony concertmaster Jun Iwasaki will take center stage as soloist on a technically dazzling part that contrasts strikingly with Weill's imaginatively scored backdrop of wind instruments. Opening the concert is Adjustable Wrench, a lively piece by contemporary composer Michael Torke, whose own work — like Bernstein’s and Weill’s — incorporates the influences of jazz and popular music.

PROGRAM
Christopher Rouse – Supplica  Live Recording
Christopher Rouse – Concerto for Orchestra  Live Recording
Tchaikovsky – Symphony No. 4

PERFORMERS
Nashville Symphony | Giancarlo Guerrero
, conductor

Be there for a live recording of two contemporary classics by Pulitzer Prize-winning composer Christopher Rouse, who has written “some of the most memorable music around,” according to The New York Times. His Concerto for Orchestra will showcase the virtuosity of the entire Nashville Symphony, in a juggernaut performance that balances explosive rhythmic passages with lyrical string interludes.

It’s the perfect setup for Tchaikovsky’s Fourth Symphony, the composer’s urgent reckoning with the forces of fate, which features some of the Russian master’s most brilliant music. Of this piece, which was inspired directly by Beethoven’s Fifth Symphony, the composer wrote: “There is not a single line in this Symphony that I have not felt in my whole being and that has not been a true echo of the soul.”
