UMD Symphony Orchestra: "Pathetique"
UMD Symphony Orchestra
Music Director James Ross
Guest conductor John Devlin
Clarinet Emily Robinson
UMSO performs Tchaikovsky’s Symphony No. 6, which premiered nine days before the composer’s death and was his last completed symphony.
Appropriately called “Pathetique,” Symphony No. 6 is tense and brooding, and addresses the power of fate in life and death.
Also on the program: Emily Robinson, the second-prize winner of the 2012 UMSO Concerto Competition, joins the orchestra to perform Copland’s Concerto for Clarinet.
