Ray Chen makes his Seattle Symphony debut with Tchaikovsky’s enchanting Violin Concerto, one of the most beloved works for the violin. Brimming with irresistible melodies, the concerto dazzles from its gorgeous opening to its pyrotechnic finale. Shostakovich’s Eleventh Symphony marks the events of the brutally crushed 1905 Russian Revolution — protest and defiance against oppression rendered in thrilling music.
