this saturday, sunday, and monday, the oregon symphony presents some delicate french fare sandwiched between a pair of russian gems: a dreamy violin concerto by henri dutilleux preceded by rimsky-korsakov’s capriccio espagnol and proceeded by tchaikovsky’s symphony number six.
why go? um, it’s gonna be a twenty-something smorgasbord! not only will a 26-year-old yossif ivanov fiddle his way through a 27-year-old concerto, a 24-year-old aziz shokhakimov will be making his american debut atop the schnitzer podium. and bee-tee-dubbz: you think you know tchaikovsky? wait ’til you hear his final symphony. [sigh…]
