Birchall Labyrinth for cello and orchestra
Tchaikovsky Symphony No. 4
Trumpets and horns shout out in terror, the violins sob with longing — when Tchaikovsky wears his heart on his sleeve, there’s emotion in every note. And never more so than in his Fourth Symphony: a no-holds barred musical autobiography, drenched in melody. It’ll make a sensational finish to a concert that begins with Brahms at his wittiest and most mellow, and includes a fascinating new musical adventure from the Philharmonia’s very own Richard Birchall.
