The Des Moines Symphony is delighted and honored to continue their collaboration with the Chicago Symphony for their third special BEYOND THE SCORE presentation. You&rsquo ll experience live Tchaikovsky&rsquo s epic Symphony No. 4, a work the composer himself said is &ldquo better than anything I&rsquo ve done so far.&rdquo You&rsquo ll discover the behind-the-scenes story of the masterpiece &ndash why this period of Tchaikovsky&rsquo s life was so prolific and how the composer creates drama that rivals that found in the great Russian literary works of Pushkin and Tolstoy. After an intriguing and revealing multimedia first half &ndash with stunning visuals on a giant screen, actors and a narrator &ndash you will hear this magnificent work for orchestra in its entirety, including its epic opening with blazing brass evoking the famous Fate theme.
