Tchaikovsky's Fourth - 12 Noon Friday 16 September 

Eivind Aadland conductor
Baiba Skride violin

GLINKA Ruslan and Ludmila, Overture
DVOƘÁK Violin Concerto in A minor, Op 53
TCHAIKOVSKY Symphony No 4 in F minor, Op 36



From its opening horn fanfare to ecstatic, triumphant close, Tchaikovsky’s Fourth Symphony is one of the most brilliant and colourful of all symphonies. Dedicated to Tchaikovsky’s key supporter and patron, Nadezhda von Meck, the Fourth spirals through dreaminess, melancholy and sweetness. The concert commences with the overture to the opera Ruslan and Ludmila by Mikhail Glinka, a composer who influenced Tchaikovsky in his early years.

The true star of the show is Baiba Skride, who appears as soloist in Dvorak’s one-and-only Violin Concerto. Less well known than many Romantic violin concertos, Dvorak’s concerto is fiery, passionate and virtuosic, and finds its dream exponent in Baiba Skride.

If anyone can capture the magic of Grieg’s music, it’s Eivind Aadland. The Norwegian conductor – who was born in Bergen, Grieg’s birthplace and the city where he lived and worked – has recorded all of Grieg’s symphonic works. So we can’t think of anyone better to present these vivid orchestral miniatures than our very own Chief Conductor and Artistic Director.

The soloist in this concert is Spanish pianist Javier Perianes, who returns to Tasmania for Ravel’s breathtaking G-Major Piano Concerto. It’s neatly paired with Stravinsky’s Firebirdwhich will sweep you into a fairy-tale world of heroes, villains, princesses and a magic garden.
