Peter Ilyich Tchaikovsky made everything look easy. He reportedly completed his well-known Violin Concerto, one of his most frequently performed compositions, in only a month, and did so in the wake of a rocky marriage. He also didn’t even play violin. The beloved piece will be showcased during the Spokane Symphony’s next Classics concert, and conductor Eckart Preu is bringing in Benjamin Beilman, a New York-based violinist who previously performed here in 2015, to make quick work of Tchaikovsky’s concerto. The program will also feature a tribute to Kendall Feeney, the symphony’s longtime principal pianist, who passed away earlier this month.
