David Garrett & London Philharmonic Orchestra

Tchaikovsky: Violin Concerto and Symphony No. 5

  • Sat17February18:00 H

Celebrated by some and doubted by others, whether due to his way of life or his success with wide audiences: David Garrett does what every artist personality does – he polarizes. His outstanding abilities on the violin were evident not only to Claudio Abbado, who recorded the complete Mozart concertos with him. For the Tchaikovsky Concerto, the artist has brought along only the best: the London Philharmonic Orchestra under Christoph Eschenbach, winner of the Ernst von Siemens Music Prize, the Nobel Prize of music.

The Tchaikovsky Concerto is the most popular violin concerto of them all – despite the fact that it was considered unplayable at the time of its premiere. The composer was happily in love while he was composing the music, which explains its cheerful and melodious character.

The Onegin Polonaise is festive music, but its grandeur is deceptive, forming as it does the external backdrop for inner dramas. The Fifth Symphony is also tragic: owing to its creator’s ability to draw a beautiful melody out of even the most sorrowful moments, it is regarded as one of the composer’s most well-known works.
