Civic Orchestra: Tchaikovsky 4
Tuesday, January 15, 2019
Bramwell Tovey conducts Tchaikovsky's quintessential work featuring rich melodies inspired by the composer's Russian musical heritage and his own romantic trials. This is paired with two works by British composers who, inspired by the history of the English and Italian countrysides, translate the past into their own epic, late-Romantic orchestral style.
