Tchaikovsky's Fifth Symphony
Tugan Sokhiev Conductor
Renaud Capuçon Violin
Korngold Violin Concerto
Tchaikovsky Symphony No. 5
After making a terrific impression in his debut with the Orchestra in 2014, Bolshoi Music
Director Tugan Sokhiev returns for this stirring program drawn in part from strong Russian
influences. Famous for its ingenious use of a "fate" theme, Tchaikovsky's Fifth Symphony
progresses from a somber beginning to an uplifting, triumphant march in the final movement.
It's Tchaikovsky at his soulful best! We open with Anatoli Liadov's depiction of a mythical
Russian house spirit. And Oscar-winning Viennese composer Erich Korngold infuses his Violin
Concerto with Hollywood flair; Frenchman Renaud Capuçon brings his "lean but velvety tone"
to a score that lets you "all but conjure up the lovely Olivia de Havilland or the
swashbuckling Errol Flynn." (Los Angeles Times)"
