Benaroya Hall

Benaroya Hall houses two performance halls in a complex that is thoroughly integrated into downtown Seattle. Occupying an entire city block at the very core of the city, the development celebrates the vital role of performance events while maintaining the continuity of commercial life along one avenue and providing a much-needed public space, in the form of a terraced garden, along another.

While Tchaikovsky is usually represented by his most popular pieces, there is much in his output that remains to be discovered and enjoyed by audiences. This concert features the overture to the opera Pique Dame, a suite from the incidental music for Alexander Ostrovsky's play The Snow Maiden, and the haunting Sérénade mélancolique featuring the Philharmonic's concertmaster, Jae-In Shin, as well as four of Tchaikovsky's most enduring works: the Waltz from the opera Eugene Onegin, the Marche slave, a transcription for string orchestra of the Andante cantabile from his String Quartet No. 1, and the powerful symphonic poem after Dante, Francesca da Rimini.

A program of music by composers who were also major  and influential conductors. Music by Leonard Bernstein opens the program: the overture to his landmark musical West Side Story. Felix Mendelssohn, lauded in his day as a superb conductor, is represented by his concert overture The Hebrides. SPO Principal Clarinet William Blayney will perform Mozart's Clarinet Concerto, still the greatest for the instrument. The concert concludes with the Northwest premiere of the Symphony No. 1 by the great Hungarian-born composer-conductor Antal Doráti, a favorite piece of Music Director Adam Stern's for decades and his first performance of it.

Hector Berlioz was so entranced by the heavenly slow movement of Beethoven's Symphony No. 4 that he claimed it had to have been written by the Archangel Michael and not by a mere mortal. This lyrical symphony is balanced by the high-spirited Rossiniana by Ottorino Respighi, a suite for large orchestra based on short piano pieces by Gioachino Rossini. The soloist for this concert will be Evan Hjort, winner of the orchestra's 2015 Don Bushell Competition, in a performance of Karol Szymanowski's Violin Concerto No. 2, Op. 61.

Leonard Bernstein, generally credited with popularizing Mahler's music more than any other conductor and making it a staple in the concert-hall forever, wrote fervently of the music's "apocalyptic radiance". The Philharmonic concludes their 2015-16 season with a performance of Mahler's Symphony No. 1, "Titan", a work that baffled audiences at its first performances and is now its composer's best-known work. Seattle Symphony Associate Concertmaster Emma McGrath, who dazzled Philharmonic audiences with her 2014 performance of Benjamin Britten's Violin Concerto, returns to play the West Coast premiere of Bernd Alois Zimmermann's shattering Violin Concerto.
