Eun Sun Kim, conductor
Jonathan Green, host
Sergei Prokofiev – Symphony No. 1 in D major, Op. 25 “Classical”
Pyotr Ilyich Tchaikovsky – Symphony No. 5 in E minor, Op. 64
Prokofiev’s whimsical First Symphony and Tchaikovsky’s gut-wrenching Fifth show two Russian outsiders arriving at bold and highly personal strategies to cast aside the heavy mantles of Mozart and Beethoven. This Untuxed concert is short (no intermission) and casual (no formal wear for the orchestra), with engaging insights and wit from host and Seattle Symphony bass Jonathan Green.
