Theatrical flair and blazing colour with Edward Gardner and Christian Tetzlaff.

Hear the ringing fanfares that open Tchaikovsky’s Fourth Symphony? For him, they symbolised Fate, and the whole Symphony is a no-holds-barred struggle between a composer who lived by his feelings and a universe that he was convinced was out to destroy him. This is music that pulses with melody and emotion; it’s perfect for a conductor with Edward Gardner’s theatrical flair. Beethoven’s Egmont Overture tells a tale of oppression and liberation, and in the hands of the superb Christian Tetzlaff, Bartók’s Second Violin Concerto will positively blaze with colour. A concert to set the ears tingling.
