LA PATETICA: Orchestra Sinfonica Giovanile
About the Event
Immerse yourself in the stunning architecture of Milan's breathtaking Auditorium Fondazione Cariplo for the ultimate concert set to awake your understanding of classical music.
It is with the skillful baton of Robert Treviño that the first appointment of the Season for the Milan Youth Symphony Orchestra takes place.
On the program, alongside Olivier Messiaen's Les Offrandes oubliées, a three‐panel symphonic meditation that perfectly sums up the French composer's artistic‐religious vision, we find Tchaikovsky's Symphony No. 6, the Patetica, the spiritual testament of a musician who died in fact a few days after its first performance, which took place on Oct. 18, 1893, under his baton. It remains without doubt his symphonic masterpiece, in which he achieves, as never before, a splendid differentiation between the individual tempi, rendering each a faithful and humanized quado of his troubled and conflicted personality. Beginning with the first movement — Adagio. Allegro non troppo, a restless piece full of torment and lingering, attested to by the constantly changing agogic indications, almost testifying to the composer's intimate uncertainty, until the last movement, the very famous Adagio lamentoso, which blossoms like an already withered flower after the third movement, the Allegro molto vivace, in which the heady, almost excessively festive mood seems, however, to conceal a subtle suffering, silenced by the exultant atmosphere.
