The concert opens with contemporary composer Michael Torke’s December, evoking his memories of “cozy cheer in the early days of winter” in Milwaukee. It is followed by Pulitzer-winning composer Kevin Puts’ bright and beautiful Flute Concerto, with Dallas Symphony flutist and Meadows faculty member Kara Kirkendoll as soloist. The concert concludes with Tchaikovsky’s richly expressive Fourth Symphony. Written during a turbulent period of his life in 1877-78, it focuses on the power and inevitability of fate, yet ends on a positive note recognizing the possibility of happiness. The composer called it “an echo of my most intimate spiritual life.” For more information call 214.768.2787.
