NJSO presents Tchaikovsky’s Fifth Symphony

HENRIK NÁNÁSI conductor

After making a splash in his superb Metropolitan Opera debut last season, Hungarian conductor Henrik Nánási makes his first NJSO appearance with a masterpiece from his homeland and a favorite Romantic symphony.

BARTÓK Music for Strings, Percussion and Celesta

A daring 20th-century masterpiece! Revel in the sounds of the NJSO strings, accentuated by keyboard and percussion—writing so evocative that Stanley Kubrick famously used it in The Shining.

TCHAIKOVSKY Symphony No. 5

Critics of Tchaikovsky’s day crushed this new symphony (“a horde of demons struggling in a torrent of brandy,” wrote one), and even the composer said, “It is a failure.” But its hypnotic melodies and triumphant mood turned the Fifth into an audience favorite.
