Cascade Symphony to perform Tchaikovsky

Seattle Symphony concertmaster Alexander Velinzon is featured in the Cascade Symphony Orchestra’s first concert of the new year.
Velinzon is playing the Tchaikovsky Violin Concerto in D Major on Jan. 20 at the Edmonds Center for the Arts.
KING-FM classical music radio’s Dave Beck offers a pre-concert lecture at 6:30 p.m. and the concert starts at 7:30 p.m.
The program also includes Leonard Bernstien’s Overture to “Candide,” Johann Sebastian Bach’s Fantasia and Fugue in c minor transcribed by Edward Elgar and “Till Eulenspiegel’s Merry Pranks” by Richard Strauss.
Velinzon joined the Seattle Symphony in 2012 after serving years in the Boston Symphony Orchestra. He has performed with such conductors as James Levine, Kurt Masur, Sir Colin Davis and Michael Tilson Thomas and with orchestras throughout the world.
A Russian native, Velinzon began violin lessons at age 6. After moving to the U.S. in 1990, he studied with Dorothy DeLay at the Juilliard School, where he earned his bachelor’s and master’s degrees. He made his New York recital debut at Carnegie Hall. His New York concerto debut was in 1999 with Jupiter Symphony.
Though now frequently performed and widely enjoyed, the concerto Velinzon will perform was dismissed as unplayable by violinist Leopold Auer, to whom Tchaikovsky dedicated the concerto in 1879.
General admission to Cascade Symphony concerts is $25. Seniors pay $20, students $15 and children 12 and younger are admitted for $10. People who don’t have tickets by the night of the concert are encouraged to sign up at 6:15 p.m. for unclaimed tickets.
Edmonds Center for the Arts is at 410 Fourth Ave. N.
