    Cape Cod Symphony Classics IV Letting Go

    Jung-Ho Pak, Conductor | Nicolas Kendall, Violin

    Sometimes the only way to catch your breath is to lose it completely. This music tugs at hearts and grabs souls. Nick Kendall plays by some rules and breaks others –and you’re so glad he does. He and composer/musician Chris Brubeck (son of late jazz legend, Dave) turned a three-day jam session into a raging violin concerto. Spontaneous Combustion is a fusion of classical, jazz, country and funk – with wiggle room for improv! The result is brilliant. So was Tchaikovsky.

    But even geniuses have moments of self-doubt. After destroying a work in progress, he “put his whole soul” into a new one and “wept a great deal” while he was composing it. This symphony is Tchaikovsky’s autobiography: every deep, dark, desperate, hopeful, hopeless, happy and heart-wrenching moment. He adored his sixth symphony. It was his comeback.
