Tchaikovsky: Symphony No. 4

When: Sat., Oct. 11, 8 p.m. 2014

Tonight's Colorado Springs Philharmonic concert aims to show how one of Tchaikovsky's most renowned symphonies coincided with a great disaster in his life: marriage. This reads like a joke, but it was no laughing matter for the troubled, probably gay, composer, who wasn't compatible with this former student and feared she'd out him. They lived together only six weeks. However, Tchaikovsky soon created Symphony No. 4, a masterpiece that even makes an appearance at the beginning of Pink Floyd's "Wish You Were Here." Catch the show at 8 tonight at the Pikes Peak Center (190 S. Cascade Ave., csphilharmonic.org), led by Josep Caballé-Domenech. Tickets run $19 to $55. Edie Adelstein
