London Philharmonic Orchestra

Glinka Waltz Fantasy
Walton Cello Concerto
Tchaikovsky Symphony No. 4

Dima Slobodeniouk conductor
Dane Johansen cello

For Tchaikovsky, Glinka was the acorn from which all Russian music grew. So there’s no more fitting upbeat to Tchaikovsky’s impassioned Fourth Symphony than this delightful miniature from the ballrooms of Imperial St Petersburg – think War and Peace. And then, with a shattering fanfare, Tchaikovsky lets fly with the symphony in which he poured out his soul: a no-holds-barred autobiography, told in music of raw emotion and dazzling colour. It’s a gripping showcase for guest conductor Dima Slobodeniouk; first, though, he joins the young American cellist Dane Johansen to bask in the Mediterranean warmth of Walton’s sunlit Cello Concerto.
