This evening brings an exciting combination of classic and contemporary, pairing the work of Pyotr Ilyich Tchaikovsky alongside 2017 MacArthur fellow Tyshawn Sorey. A standout of the holiday season, selections from Tchaikovsky's ballet The Nutcracker contain some of the composer's most beloved melodies. Celebrated multi-instrumentalist and composer Tyshawn Sorey has written and performed across genres and is quickly gaining esteem as a master of improvisation and composition. Cellist Seth Parker Woods will perform Sorey's Cello Concerto, joining the ASO under the baton of the young Russian conductor Maxim Emelyanychev.
