This program of Gentle Giants opens with Arvo Pärt’s Fratres, a mystical journey inspired by Gregorian chant and church bells. Japanese pianist Nobuyuki Tsujii presents an intimate version of Chopin’s Second Piano Concerto featuring the Orpheus strings. Tchaikovsky bared his sensitive soul in the String Quartet No. 1; now composer Christopher Theofanidis grows Tchaikovsky’s introspective essay into a Chamber Symphony using expanded arrangements that amplify the ardent emotions.
