The University Philharmonia Orchestra will perform one of Tchaikovsky’s most beloved works: his Sixth Symphony. Premiered only one week before the composer’s death, the “Pathetique” symphony is memorable for its deeply melancholic musical expression and famed as one of the most beautiful melodies ever written. The first half of the concert will include the “March” and “Scherzo” from The Love for Three Oranges, two excerpts from Prokofiev's satirical opera of the same title, along with a truly innovative work from Mozart, impressively composed within days during his time in Linz: his spirited and exuberant Symphony 36.

PROGRAM: Prokofiev- “March” and “Scherzo” from The Love for Three Oranges; Mozart- Symphony No. 36 "Linz"; Tchaikovsky- Symphony No. 6 "Pathetique"
