Domingo Hindoyan, Conductor
Duncan Riddell, Violin
Richard Harwood, Cello

Glinka
Overture: A Life for the Tsar

Brahms
Double Concerto for Violin and Cello

Tchaikovsky
Symphony No.5

Rich in harmony and tenderness, Brahms' Double Concerto is a highlight of the 2019-2020 classical season in Reading, not to be missed. Favoured for its heart-swelling melodic balance between the cello and violin, against the abundance of the orchestra; the double concerto climaxes with joyful triumph and majesty.

The second half of this concert is dedicated to Tchaikovsky's monumental Symphony No.5. Tchaikovsky's use of the recurring Fate theme as an emotional core paints new orchestral colours in each movement with intensity and purpose. It is rightfully remembered as one of the great Romantic symphonies.
