The Other Fifth

The old and new in classical music collide under conductor Alasdair Neale’s baton in the preseason, full-orchestra performance of Tchaikovsky’s Fifth Symphony at the New World Center Saturday at 7:30 p.m. Music aficionados will be familiar with the piece and its mixed reception over the years (frequently rising and falling in critical stature), while others might recognize it from the seminal 1986 Corey Haim film Lucas, or perhaps from confusing it with Beethoven’s Fifth Symphony. Regardless, it remains a must-listen for those whose only Tchaikovsky experience comes from Swan Lake and The Nutcracker. If your musical tastes lean more modern, composer Nico Muhly’s (who is known for collaborations with bands such as Grizzly Bear and Antony and the Johnsons, as well as his score for the film The Reader) has “Wish You Were Here” on the program, in addition to selections from 19th-century French composer Claude Debussy.
Sat., Sept. 24, 7:30 p.m., 2011
