TCHAIKOVSKY Swan Lake: Suite 20’
KHACHATURIAN Gayane Suite 28’
Yuri Botnari and the Moscow Philharmonic provide a thrilling ‘white night’ of great Russian music. Tchaikovsky’s Marche Slave continues to delight and uplift concert-goers the world over. So too the same composer’s beguiling Swan Lake, a veritable treasure trove of great melodies. There is more ballet music in the form of Khachaturian’s Gayane. With its famously sharp-edged ‘Sabre Dance’, it is music that attractively reflects Khachaturian’s Armenian roots.
Glazunov’s Violin Concerto might not be as well-known as some, but rest assured it’s a gem! Natalia Lomeiko is a renowned interpreter of the work, a player who has truly mastered its deft blend of virtuosity and rich, highly-strung romanticism.
