Beethoven Piano Concerto No. 1
Tchaikovsky Symphony No. 4

Yan Pascal Tortelier conductor

Fate. It has hung dagger-like over the art of music since Beethoven seized it by the throat. In 1877, Tchaikovsky felts its weighty hand on his shoulder. His artistic response was a Symphony unlike anything he’d created before: ‘This is fate’, he revealed to his confidante Nadezhda von Meck, explaining the opening notes of his heart-on-sleeve Fourth Symphony. But by the Symphony’s final chapter, Tchaikovsky’s darkness had turned to light. ‘Rejoice in others’ rejoicing’, he urged Nadezhda, and the Symphony veered towards the sort of unstoppable, ebullient confidence and joy that Beethoven captured so gloriously in his First Piano Concerto.
