Dallas Symphony Orchestra presents Music of Tchaikovsky & Jongen
Inspired by Lord Byron’s “dramatic poem,” Tchaikovsky’s brooding "Manfred Symphony" portrays the solitary hero searching for peace and redemption. Through a rich orchestral palette, the audience enters the world of spirits, good ones with lustrous strings and demonic ones with a shattering Dies irae. Organ phenom Cameron Carpenter shows off the Lay Family Concert Organ with Jongen’s tour de force, requiring, as one commentator says, a soloist with “brawn, stamina and grace.”
The concert will highlight organist Cameron Carpenter. The concert will be conducted by Kirill Karabits.
