Longmont Symphony Orchestra
FEATURING: Elliot Moore, Conductor
PYOTR TCHAIKOVSKY Symphony No. 6
TYLER HARRISON Symphony No. 3 (WORLD PREMIERE)
In advance of Mental Health Awareness and Pride months, we take a look at the musical expressions of mental health and identity struggles from two similar voices, separated by a century. Intensely beautiful and moving, Peter Tchaikovsky’s Symphony #6 “The Pathetique” written just 9 days before his untimely death clearly shows this great composer wrestling with darkness and light. American composer Tyler Harrison’s World Premiere Symphony #3 “The Garden of Tears” is his thematically paired answer to “The Pathetique”. Harrison’s symphony ends with hope, as he says “The garden of life thrives on the tears that water it, but it is laughter that ultimately defines its beauty.” Powerful and transformative, this concert program will stay with you.
This concert is part of the MainStage and Complete packages.
