Tchaikovsky Symphony No. 5

Synopsis

Tchaikovsky’s Fifth Symphony triumphs over fate, a journey through troubles into joy and ecstasy — and some of the greatest melodies ever given to us. Korngold’s lush Violin Concerto prefigures the Hollywood sound with high romance and gorgeous melodies — played for us by the masterful James Ehnes. And to begin the program, William Grant Still’s Poem takes us from darkness into light.
