Tchaikovsky Symphony No 4

Sun 19 May 2013 7.30pm - Barbican Hall, London

Overview

Sir Antonio Pappano

Sir Antonio Pappano

LUTOSLAWSKI Concerto for Orchestra
TCHAIKOVSKY Symphony No 4

Sir Antonio Pappano conductor
London Symphony Orchestra

Polish folk music is at the heart of Lutoslawski’s Concerto for Orchestra, transformed by the composer and absorbed into his own experimental style. Tchaikovsky’s Symphony No 4 is tied inextricably to a personal breakdown, prompted by a hasty, ill-advised marriage. The opening fanfare announces the oppressive theme of fate, the ‘seed of the whole symphony’ and a force that Tchaikovsky felt ruled his life.
