Vienna Young Philharmonic: Pathétique
Tchaikovsky's Symphony No. 6 and Korngold’s Violin Concerto
“I can say without exaggeration that I have put my entire soul into this work” said Tchaikovsky of his Pathétique. And he added: “I am somewhat bemused to note that my latest symphony is permeated by a mood which is closely related to that of a requiem.”
Joy and suffering often walk hand-in-hand, and this is also evident in this programme: Tchaikovsky’s most famous symphony by far, and Korngold’s violin concerto, with its lightness of touch and film music sensibility. The soloist taking the lead at MuTh in this extremely challenging concerto is Albena Danailova, a Vienna Philharmonic Concertmaster and a supremely skilled performer. Equally exciting is the prospect of seeing how young artists interpret Tchaikovsky’s passionate music.
