Tchaikovsky's Fifth Symphony

BBC Scottish Symphony Orchestra, Rosanne Philippens & Gemma New
Music Hall

Imagine this. A journey from darkness to light. Struggles between love and despair result in a pulse-raising masterpiece that stirs the soul. 

Sometimes art imitates life so closely that you can almost feel its breath. “With passion and desire” wrote Tchaikovsky on the slow movement of his Fifth Symphony, and the whole piece is a struggle between love and despair, told in elegant waltzes, bittersweet songs and melody after sweeping melody. Gemma New is always a popular guest conductor here in Scotland, and she knows exactly how to get to the heart of a masterpiece – whether Lera Auerbach’s fiery retelling of the myth of Icarus, or the shadows, secrets and burning truths of Shostakovich’s powerful First Violin Concerto. Rosanne Philippens is the soloist today: a violinist who believes that every note should convey emotion, and forge a connection.

£6 tickets are available for Students, Under 26s and Unemployed (Price Band C & D).
