Tchaikovsky Symphony 6
Hear the TSO perform Tchaikovsky’s impassioned Sixth Symphony, a deeply personal work which is now also one of his most popular. His final completed symphony, the composer declared that he had put his “whole soul” into composing it.
Come for: The immensely popular and eloquent Scottish composer, James MacMillan, created this scintillating work expressly for Jean-Yves Thibaudet. Part concerto, part symphonic poem, it revels in colour, atmosphere and drama.
And more: TSO audiences agree with the New York Times that with Jean-Yves Thibaudet “every note he fashions is a pearl … the joy and musicality of his performance could not be missed.”
