About the event

Join Yuriy Bekker and the College of Charleston Orchestra in their fall program, "Two Geniuses: Tchaikovsky and Orellana." The orchestra will perform Tchaikovsky's Symphony no. 5 and Variations on a Rococo Theme, featuring CofC cellist Maria Savelyeva. Both works are examples of some of Tchaikovsky's beloved and treasured masterpieces. This concert will also feature the U.S. premiere of Joaquín Orellana's Ballet Contrastes. An experimental Guatemalan composer and violinist, Orellana's musical career has been marked by embracing experimentalist techniques inspired by de-colonial ideologies and Guatemala's cultural history and conflicting social context. His Ballet Contrastes beautifully marry traditional composition with innovative sound.

Scheduled Program: Tchaikovsky, Variations on a Rococo Theme Maria Savelyeva, cello Orellana, Ballet Contrastes (US premiere) Tchaikovsky, Symphony no 5 in E minor, Op.64
