MELODIC MASTER: Enjoy the inexhaustible fruits of one of the original Russian colluders, Peter Ilyich Tchaikovsky.

In a political season of fear and loathing of all things Russian, Symphony Silicon Valley is reminding us that Russia has given us good and ennobling things as well. In this case, it’s Pyotr Tchaikovsky, the 19th-century Romantic Era composer responsible for some of the most memorable melodies in the classical repertoire. Under the direction of conductor Tatsuya Shimono, Symphony Silicon Valley takes on some Tchaikovsky deep cuts, with the help of piano soloist Stephen Prutsman, in a program designed to showcase the Russian master’s versatility. Sunday matinee at 2:30pm. (WB)
