KIRKLAND SNIDER: Something for the Dark
TCHAIKOVSKY: Violin Concerto in D major, op. 35
NIELSEN: Symphony No. 4 “The Inextinguishable”
Sarah Kirkland Snider’s Something for the Dark, inspired by a poem by Philip Levine, is an evocative journey about hope, endurance and renewal. Recently named one of Classic FM’s Top Artists under 30, violinist Esther Yoo joins the Reno Phil for Tchaikovsky’s beloved Violin Concerto, a thrilling display of virtuosity and melodic beauty. Nielsen’s Symphony No. 4 was written during the backdrop of WWI, depicting the war with a dramatic duel between two timpanists. The symphony conveys the idea of an “inextinguishable” life force as an energy that withstands suffering and persists through adversity.
