Tacoma Symphony’s “Reconciliation” concert Saturday, February 25th 7:30-9:30pm features Britten’s “Four Sea Interludes” from Peter Grimes, Gregory Youtz’s Suite from Tacoma Method, and Brahms’s Symphony No. 4.
Britten’s “Four Sea Interludes” tells the story of Peter Grimes, a psychologically troubled outcast from an English fishing village. Local composer Dr. Gregory Youtz sheds light on perhaps the most tragic chapter of Tacoma’s history in Tacoma Method, an opera about the wrongful expulsion of the city’s Chinese community. Brahms draws inspiration from Bach, Beethoven and Schumann in his deeply passionate Symphony No. 4, one of the most loved symphonies of the Romantic period.
