From the fantastic “The Tempest” to the tragic “Romeo and Juliet”, Tchaikovsky transforms classic Shakespeare into musical poetry.

Barber’s “Adagio for Strings” gently soothes your deepest sorrow.

It would be extremely difficult to find any music more suitable to express pain and mourning than Barber's "Adagio for Strings". Every note is a tear caught between a whine and a wail that mourns for the dead and comforts the living.

Tchaikovsky absolutely loved Shakespeare's works. He wrote a symphonic poem adapted from The Tempest, and the Romeo and Juliet fantasia, showing the composer's fervent attempt to connect literature with music. The pieces display both composition skills and the composer's boundless imagination. Tchaikovsky highlighted the essence of love in the two compositions. Whether the experience is sorrowful or joyous, love will always be the everlasting light in the world. It lights our path as we walk towards good and eventually find our better selves.

This concert offers an extraordinary experience to the audience: a chance to feel the rich, deep emotional transitions in music. If you can comprehend and embrace the feelings, classical music will become your life companion.
