Conductor Hamish McKeich Violin Andrew Beer Khachaturian Gayane Suites (excerpts) Ligeti Violin Concerto Tchaikovsky Symphony No.6 'Pathétique' Step forward, Andrew Beer! Our marvellous concertmaster plays Ligeti's brilliant, and fiendishly difficult, concerto. This wonderful piece glitters, shimmers, soars; at times the music seems to come from other worlds. It is music that is not entirely tame but it is profoundly human and it is an unforgettable musical experience. From far-off Armenia, Khachaturian's flashy and exotic ballet Gayane provides a scintillating beginning to the concert, and we finish with Tchaikovsky's last, most powerful and most deeply felt symphony. Tchaikovsky's soul is always on his sleeve but his tragic, fate-ridden passion is never more desperate than here.
