Jurowski's Tchaikovsky

Part of Classical Season 2019/20

In the first concert of its 2019/20 season, the LPO and its Principal Conductor present music by Tchaikovsky, Britten and Oliver Knussen.

At the dawn of a new century, Alexander Scriabin saw wondrous musical visions – but then, he was standing on the shoulders of giants.

Don’t be misled by the name ‘Pathétique’: Tchaikovsky’s blazing, autobiographical final symphony summed up a century of Russian music, and is still one of the classical concert hall’s most uncompromising emotional experiences.

At the beginning of the LPO's new season, Vladimir Jurowski and the orchestra gaze forward and backward, paying homage to a great friend, the late Oliver Knussen, and exploring one of British music’s most powerful 20th-century masterpieces with Julia Fischer.
