Widely recognized as one of the leading conductors of his generation, London Symphony Orchestra Principal Guest Conductor Gianandrea Noseda presents the first release in a new series exploring Tchaikovsky’s final three symphonies. Tchaikovsky’s Symphony No.4 is said to reflect his own turmoil: a disastrous marriage, struggles with his sexuality, and severe depression. Yet, despite the gloomy outlook, the symphony proves undoubtedly that Tchaikovsky knew how to fill his works with memorable melodies. Known for his mastery of Russian repertoire, Noseda pairs Tchaikovsky’s music with Mussorgsky’s Pictures at an Exhibition, performed here in Ravel’s iconic orchestration.
