Canellakis conducts Tchaikovsky's colourful Fourth Symphony.

Hear the ringing fanfares that open Tchaikovsky’s Fourth Symphony? For him, they symbolised Fate, and the whole Symphony is a no-holds-barred struggle between a composer who lived by his feelings and a universe that he was convinced was out to destroy him. This is music that pulses with melody and emotion; as is Shostakovich’s explosive First Violin Concerto, which will be brought to life tonight by the renowned violinist Christian Tetzlaff.
