Beethoven Overture, Egmont

Sibelius Violin Concerto

--interval--

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. But first, violinist Vadim Repin performs Sibelius’s Violin Concerto. It casts its spell with soulful melody, rhythmic power and flights of virtuosity.
