Jennifer Pike won BBC Young Musician of the year at the age of 12 and since then has developed a major international career. Tchaikovsky’s 4th Symphony is a musical spectacular with its threatening brass motifs, brilliant woodwinds and lush strings is quite unique and will takes the audience on a profound emotional journey to a triumphant and optimistic conclusion .
