RPO: Tchaikovsky's Sixth Symphony ‘Pathétique’

RPO: Tchaikovsky's Sixth Symphony ‘Pathétique’


The Royal Philharmonic Orchestra close their 2019/20 classical season in Hull with Tchaikovsky's Symphony No.6

BERLIOZ Béatrice et Bénédict: Overture
SHOSTAKOVICH Cello Concerto No.1
TCHAIKOVSKY Symphony No.6, ‘Pathétique’

Martyn Brabbins Conductor
Pablo Ferrandez Cello

Royal Philharmonic Orchestra

Berlioz’ Overture opens the final concert of the RPO’s 2019-20 Season with a merry excursion through the composer’s adaptation of Shakespeare’s Much Ado About Nothing.

Then follows Shostakovich’s monumental Cello Concerto No.1, performed by esteemed soloist Pablo Ferrandez. The whirring machinery of the first movement unwinds into meditative second and third movements, before both soloist and orchestra re-energise themselves with electrifying vigour in the boisterous finale.

The evening is drawn to a close by Tchaikovsky’s monumental Symphony No.6, ‘Pathétique’. Bursting with passion, Tchaikovsky himself described the piece as the best thing he had ever composed.
