Tchaikovsky’s 6th Symphony headlines a program that will also include selections from Grieg’s Peer Gynt and Nielsen’s Flute Concerto, Friday and Saturday at 8 p.m., at Jacoby Symphony Hall, Times-Union Center for the Performing Arts, 300 Water Street, Suite 200, Jacksonville, with Anu Tali, Conductor, and Les Roettges, Principal Flute. Tchaikovsky died just a week after the symphony’s premiere and the name “Pathétique” is certainly appropriate for the psychological drama it lays bare. Tchaikovsky himself called it, “…the best thing I ever composed.” Principal Flutist Les Roettges solos on Nielsen’s Flute Concerto, of which the composer wrote, “Here in a nutshell is what I demand of all art – opposing forces which meet aglow, appearing one but remaining two.”
