Tchaïkovski Piano Concerto No. 1 op. 23
Symphony No. 6 op. 74 « Pathétique »
Approximate running time
1st part: 35mn - Intermission: 20mn - 2nd part: 50mn
For their traditional visit, the St Petersburg Philharmonic Orchestra continue the journey through the heart of Tchaikovsky’s final symphonic trilogy, which they began last season. Following the composer’s Symphonies No. 4 and 5, performed in November 2017, we reach our final destination: the hugely famous Symphony No. 6, or “Pathétique”, in which his exploration of man’s confrontation with his destiny reaches its climax. But before this headlong dive into orchestral majesty, we will hear the no less well-known Piano Concerto No. 1, whose evocative powers and emotional richness are on a par with those of its symphonic elder sibling.
