JUNE 5, 9PM: SEATTLE SYMPHONY
Tchaikovsky found his artistic voice in his Fourth Symphony, still considered one of the great Romantic works. The tragic, impassioned and dramatic piece is paired with Barber's Second Essay for orchestra in this Seattle Symphony concert from November 2014. Plus, the internationally renowned violinist Jennifer Koh performs a critically acclaimed rendition of Esa-Pekka Salonen's Violin Concerto.
Tune in to KING FM the first Friday of every month at 9pm for a special Seattle Symphony broadcast.
JUNE 12, 9PM: AUBURN SYMPHONY ORCHESTRA
Take a grand tour of Europe with the Auburn Symphony in its season-closing concert. The program opens with Mozart’s Symphony No. 29, influenced by the adolescent composer's travels in Italy. Vivaldi composed his Concerto for Bassoon in A Minor around 1734. ASO principal bassoon Mona Butler will solo in this work as well as Elgar’s Romance for Bassoon and Orchestra, a beautifully written and sensitive piece that is classically British in style. Bizet’s L'Arlésienne Suites are concert hall favorites—energetic works taken from the incidental music the composer wrote for an Alfred Daudet play.
