TCHAIKOVSKY Nocturne for Cello and Orchestra
TCHAIKOVSKY Variations on a Rococo Theme

Rich with musical flare, Mussorgsky’s Night on Bald Mountain, famously featured in Disney’s Fantasia, leaves a powerful mark on the listener’s imagination. Armenian cellist Narek Hakhnazaryan makes his Powell Hall debut performing Tchaikovsky’s elegant Variations on a Rococo Theme. The SLSO and Chorus join for Rachmaninoff’s The Bells, a shimmering work displaying the Russian composer’s love for church bells in his homeland.
