Tchaikovsky Symphony No. 5

Synopsis

Florence Price’s Second Violin Concerto is startingly fresh, weaving influences from African American spirituals into the tapestry of the orchestra. Prokofiev’s whimsical First Symphony and Tchaikovsky’s gut-wrenching Fifth show two Russian outsiders arriving at bold and highly personal strategies to cast aside the heavy mantles of Mozart and Beethoven.
