BBC Scottish Symphony Orchestra: Tchaikovsky Double: The Pathétique Symphony

About BBC Scottish Symphony Orchestra: Tchaikovsky Double: The Pathétique Symphony

Here’s a double-whammy aimed right at the heartstrings. Over two concerts on consecutive weeks, experience the thrill and grandeur of two of Tchaikovsky’s most famous works.

Up first, his Sixth Symphony, saturated in emotion and packed with great tunes. But you’ll have your hankies out well before then as Scots mezzo Karen Cargill sings Korngold’s luscious Songs of Farewell.

And the orchestra’s Associate Conductor Alpesh Chauhan opens the concert with a work Schoenberg took 33 years to complete, a wonderful showcase for some of our brilliant principal players.
