Few works could be described as a cornerstone of Russian music other than Tchaikovsky’s Symphony No.5. The use of the recurring Fate theme as an emotional core, though common for the composer, paints new orchestral colours in each movement with intensity and purpose. Its frequent use hints also at deep anxiety that plagued the composer, underlying even when the sullen final movement is broken by a triumphant conclusion in E major. Despite the composer’s doubts, it is rightfully celebrated as one of the great Romantic symphonies.

Brahms’ Double Concerto written for violin, cello and orchestra makes for an exquisite first half with RPO Leader Duncan Riddell and Principal Cello Richard Harwood. A masterpiece of virtuosic writing and instrumentation, Brahms’ last orchestral work set new boundaries for the possibilities of the concerto form.
