Emotion and Tranquillity

Part of Classical Season 2020/21

Tchaikovsky’s passion meets Brahms’ serenity in this London Philharmonic Orchestra concert.

From the instant that its opening fanfares shatter the silence, you can tell that Tchaikovsky’s Fourth Symphony means business.

Convinced that Fate itself was out to destroy him, Tchaikovsky poured everything into this shattering symphony: a no-holds-barred emotional autobiography told in music of uncompromising melody and drama.

It’s strong stuff, which is why conductor Christoph Eschenbach has invited Ray Chen – a violinist described by the Huffington Post as ‘to die for’ – to play Brahms’ sunlit Violin Concerto.

Conceived by an Alpine lake, and glowing with sweet, serene melody, it’s the perfect foil for Tchaikovsky’s tragic vision.
