Why do we adore Tchaikovsky's Fifth Symphony so much? Because he speaks directly to us with the orchestra as his voice. Sorrow, joy, passion, triumph, the forces of Fate - it's all there in the music in its striking dramatic gestures, fabulous melodies and irresistible waltz rhythms. Coupled with Weber's virtuosic Second Clarinet Concerto played by Jo Nicolson this is a concert full of intensity and emotion.
