There's an all-Tchaikovsky program on the NY Phil in October 2020, 10/11/20

Pyotr Ilyich Tchaikovsky, b. 08/25/1840

Born in Votkinsk, Russia in 1840, historians refer to Tchaikovsky as the most popular Russian composer of his time because of his "tuneful, open-hearted melodies, impressive harmonies, and colourful, picturesque orchestration." We'll hear several examples of this on the Oct 11th episode of the NYPO.

10/4      Sibelius: Violin Concerto Tarrega: Recuerdos de la Ahlambra Berlioz: Symphonie fantastique Mozart: Symphony No. 1 (Augustin Hadelich, v; Jaap van Zweden, cond)

10/11    Tchaikovsky: Festival Coronation March, Piano Concerto No. 1, Selections from Act IV of Swan Lake, 1812 Overture (Kirill Gerstein, p; Bramwell Tovey, cond)
