November 23rd - The National Radio Orchestra Concert

Wednesday, 14 November 2012 , ora 8.54
Emotion, passion and romance in Tchaikovsky's unmistakeable pieces, performed by the National Radio Orchestra under the direction of conductor Yuri Botnari - who has a very fruitful collaboration with the Moscow Philharmonic Orchestra - and by one of the most prized young Romanian musicians, violinist Răzvan Suma, are the ingredients of a musical evening no lover of music should miss. On Friday, November 23rd, 7 pm, at the Radio Hall you will enjoy an evening dedicated exclusively to the creations of the famous Russian composer, Pyotr Ilyich Tchaikovsky. The concert will open with the Romeo and Juliet Overture - Fantasy, the preamble to a ballet that Tchaikovsky never got to compose and which concentrates the bitter pain of a tragic love story. Music lovers will then get an opportunity to enjoy the Variations on a Rococo theme for Cello and Orchestra Op. 33, a combination between the Slav spirit, which is evident in the passages inspired by the Russian folklore and the elegant chords of Rococo. The evening will end with Symphony No. 5 in E minor, Op. 64, which was presented in 1888 under the direction of its composer and is considered a reflection of Tchaikovsky's questions regarding the problematic of human existence.
