Event Details

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."
