    Tchaikovsky and Friends Celebrating Masterworks

    “Tchaikovsky and Friends” The Heart of Texas Concert Band will continue the tradition of once a year presenting symphonic works re-imagined for wind band with a performance of Russian master Tchaikovsky’s final symphonic masterpiece, the Symphony No. 6 “Pathetique”. This intensely personal expression from the greatest Romantic symphonist was greeted with bewilderment at its premier performance, only to be regarded soon after his untimely death as the masterpiece that it is.  Also on the program is American composer Gary Schocker’s “Green Places”, a pastoral concerto for flute and band that will feature San Antonio College’s own Martha Fabrique as soloist.  The program will conclude with James Barnes’ Spanish-flavored Fantasy and Fandango on Ernesto Lecuoña’s “Malagueña.”
