Tchaikovsky’s 4th & The Red Violin
Abravanel Hall
123 W S Temple, Salt Lake City, UT 84101, USA Get Directions


Tchaikovsky described the opening fanfare of his Symphony No. 4 as “fate waking us from mere daydreams.” Andrew Litton, “one of the most brilliant of American conductors” (American Record Guide), takes us on an emotional rollercoaster ride in what is sure to be a thrilling performance. An all-American first half features artist-in-association Philippe Quint performing John Corigliano’s violin concerto, inspired by the Academy Award-winning film score from The Red Violin.
