Moscow State Symphony Orchestra
24 May 2013
St. George's Hall
Our season will end with our second Russian guests of the season, the Moscow State Symphony Orchestra, under one of Russia's leading conductors, Pavel Kogan. With another pair of masterpieces by Tchaikovsky.
Tickets £ 12.50 - £26.50
Plus transaction fee*
The concert will start with Tchaikovsky's delightful Polonaise & Waltz from Eugene Onegin and then Khachaturian's Adagio from his ballet 'Spartacus' will continue our theme with music that will be remembered by many from the BBC series The Onedin Line. The second half will finish with Tchaikovsky's triumphant first piano concerto, one of the most exciting of all romantic concertos. Our season will end with Tchaikovsky's Symphony No. 6, known as the Pathetique. This great masterpiece was conducted by Tchaikovsky only a week before his mysterious death and its combination of dramatic climaxes, stirring marches and a concluding slow movement of overwhelming poignancy makes this work one of the most profound compositions of Tchaikovsky's extraordinary life.
