London Philharmonic Orchestra 2023/24 Season: Tchaikovsky’s Fourth

Sat 4 Nov 2023

Tchaikovsky, Mozart and Dvořák in a concert where every note tells a story

Dvořák Carnival Overture
Mozart Sinfonia Concertante
Tchaikovsky Symphony No.4

Luis Castillo-Briceño* conductor
Benjamin Baker violin
Jordan Bak** viola

For Tchaikovsky, the savage fanfares that open his Fourth Symphony represented Fate – and what follows is a no-holds-barred sonic autobiography, told with surging passion and unforgettable tunes. Dvořák’s Carnival Overture tells a happier tale – and it’s every bit as colourful. Mozart, meanwhile, never said what inspired his Sinfonia Concertante, but then he didn’t need to. Music speaks louder than words in this heartfelt double-showpiece by a young genius at the very peak of his game.

Two award-winning soloists take the spotlight today, as the LPO’s Fellow Conductor Luis Castillo-Briceño conducts a concert in which every note tells a story.
