Rimsky-Korsakov      Scheherazade
Tchaikovsky               Symphony no. 4

Vladimir Altschuler

Prokofiev’s lively Classical Symphony takes Haydn’s symphonies as its affectionate model, successfully updating the form to the early twentieth century.

Rimsky-Korsakov’s Arabian Nights fantasy is full of memorable moments as the beautiful Scheherazade spins her enthralling tales.

Tchaikovsky’s powerful Fourth Symphony is one of his most successful works. The opening fanfare, said to represent the power of fate, is followed by a lyrical slow movement and pizzicato scherzo. In the finale, the fanfare returns to striking effect as the work drives to its thrilling conclusion.

Pre-concert Talk, The Forge 6.30pm
