Schreker Nachtstück from Der ferne Klang Mozart Piano Concerto No 27 K595 Tchaikovsky Symphony No 6 Pathétique
Thomas Søndergård, conductor
Steven Osborne, piano
Don't be misled by the title: Pathétique means 'full of feeling', and no symphony wears its heart quite so passionately on its sleeve as Tchaikovsky's Sixth, a no-holds-barred musical autobiography by a composer on the edge. Thomas Søndergård and the RSNO will go straight for the emotional jugular, but not before they're joined by our Artist in Residence Steven Osborne for something very different: the lovely final piano concerto by Tchaikovsky's own favourite composer, Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart.
