CARNEGIE HALL PRESENTS

Performance Friday, March 20, 2015 | 8 PM

St. Louis Symphony

Stern Auditorium / Perelman Stage
A passionate symphony by Tchaikovsky, Debussy’s lushly scored Nocturnes, and the New York premiere of Weave, a work by Meredith Monk, holder of the 2014–2015 Richard and Barbara Debs Composer’s Chair, showcases the St. Louis Symphony and Music Director David Robertson’s mastery of a vast range of repertoire. Written during a tempestuous time in Tchaikovsky’s life, his Fourth Symphony reflects that tumult, melodically splendid and vibrantly orchestrated; it’s one of his most popular symphonies.

The contemporary work on this program is part of My Time, My Music.
