Stravinsky and Tchaikovsky


Immerse yourself in powerful emotions as Edward Gardner, Principal Conductor of the London Philharmonic Orchestra, leads the DSO in the first classical concert of the season. Tchaikovsky fills the bill in his Fourth Symphony with powerful brasses, whirlwinds of strings and poignant melancholy where he confesses, “there is not a single bar which I have not truly felt, and which is not an echo of my most intimate spiritual life…” Equally compelling is Stravinsky’s tragic love-triangle among puppets at a Russian Shrovetide fair, told in a brand-new musical language of complex rhythms, offbeat meters and edgy harmonies that will leave you positively enthralled.
