Bedford: Tchaikovsky, Symphony No. 4
Michael Collins conducts the Philharmonia Orchestra in a programme featuring Brahms' St Anthony Variations, Birchall's Labyrinth for Cello and Orchestra performed by Timothy Walden and Tchaikovsky's Fourth Symphony.
Trumpets and horns shout out in terror, the violins sob with longing — when Tchaikovsky wears his heart on his sleeve, there’s emotion in every note. And never more so than in his Fourth Symphony: a no-holds barred musical autobiography, drenched in melody. It’ll make a sensational finish to a concert that begins with Brahms at his wittiest and most mellow, and includes a fascinating new musical adventure from the Philharmonia’s very own Richard Birchall.
