Tchaikovsky & Folksong
ESO Pairings Presented by Tumbler & Rocks

Tchaikovsky & Folksong

Conducted by Fawzi Haimor
Friday, April 19 8:00 PM

ESO Pairings are a great introduction to classical music. With shorter programs, no intermission, and a later start time, Pairings concerts give you the ideal chance to fit exciting live music into your busy schedule. Plus, one free food or beverage item is included with every ticket.

Experience Tchaikovsky’s enchanting Symphony No. 2, which features his favourite folk tunes and is filled with dramatic moments that will keep you on the edge of your seat. Premiered in 2011 at the Sydney Opera House by the YouTube Symphony Orchestra, Mason Bates’ electrifying piece, Mothership, explores a unique blend of classical music and techno beats.
