From Russia With Love: Orchestra Seattle | Seattle Chamber Singers
From Russia With Love
Saturday, October 8, 2016 7:30 p.m.
Clinton Smith, conductor
Kai Chen, cello
Rimsky-Korsakov Russian Easter Overture
Tchaikovsky Variations on a Rococo Theme
Prokofiev Alexander Nevsky
Prokofiev’s powerful Alexander Nevsky cantata, drawn from his score for Sergei Eisenstein’s cinematic masterpiece, recounts a 13th-century battle between Russian forces and Teutonic invaders — from the thrilling “Battle on the Ice” to the haunting “Field of the Dead.” Equally picturesque, Rimsky-Korsakov’s festive Russian Easter Overture evokes the sounds of Russian Orthodox chants and celebratory church bells. Cellist Kai Chen joins Orchestra Seattle for Tchaikovsky’s charming Rococo Variations, a musical tip of the hat to his idol Mozart.
