The warm sound of the cello reigns supreme!
WSO principal cellist Yuri Hooker does the honours with Piotr Ilyich Tchaikovsky’s famous Andante cantabile and Nocturne for cello and strings, plus a bonus work for cello and strings by Tchaikovsky’s close composer friend, Sergei Taneyev.
Just the name Tchaikovsky signals a guarantee of inspired melody, vivacity, love of life and faith in the triumph of everything that’s good in life! Tchaikovsky’s music is paired with works by other composers of his time, which follows a similar path, and with no less passion in its messages. Beginning with Alexander Glazunov’s Theme and Variations for Strings and culminating in Antonín Dvořák’s Serenade in D minor. A work that offers us the composer’s best in beautiful melodies and luscious harmony with darkly rich sonorities and chocolate-like lines.
