Paavo Järvi conductor
Viktoria Mullova violin
Beethoven Overture, Egmont
Sibelius Violin Concerto
Tchaikovsky Symphony No. 6, Pathétique
A great live performance of Tchaikovsky’s final symphony is among the richest emotional experiences in classical music. The composer himself called it ‘the best thing I have composed or will ever compose’, and to many listeners it encompasses hope and despair, joy and heartbreak, life and death. Alongside, internationally-acclaimed violinist Viktoria Mullova brings her exceptional musicianship to Sibelius’s Violin Concerto. It casts its spell with soulful melody, rhythmic power and flights of virtuosity.
