The Vancouver Symphony Orchestra Musically Speaking series presents Tchaikovsky: Pathetique Maestro Otto Tausk and violinist Baiba Skride

Maestro Tausk’s first Musically Speaking concert as Music Director kicks off in a unique way, with a focus entirely on the VSO’s brilliant brass section in two sacred works by the Baroque composer Gabrielli. Magnificent violinist Baiba Skride then takes the stage for Gubaidulina’s mesmerizing Violin Concerto, before the concert concludes with Tchaikovsky’s fateful final symphony.

Learn more about famous and beloved classical music, as the conductor gives engaging commentary about the composers and their music from the podium. Video Screens on either side of the stage enhance the concert presentation with fascinating close-ups of the extraordinary musicians on stage.
