Prokofiev Violin Concerto No 2
Tchaikovsky Symphony No 6 Pathétique
Nikolaj Znaider Conductor
Sergei Krylov Violin
The name’s misleading: Pathétique means ‘filled with emotion’. And from the tragic depths of its opening to its final, devastating moments, every note of Tchaikovsky’s Sixth Symphony is drenched in feeling. Sit back and let conductor Nikolaj Znaider take you deep into its burning heart – and hear the superb Russian-born violinist Serge Krylov make his mark on Prokofiev’s best-loved work for violin, the delightful Second Concerto.
