"I am passionately fond of the national element in all its varied forms ... I am Russian in the fullest sense of the word." Although written after a long stay in Switzerland, by a composer who was sensitive to European trends in music, in Tchaikovsky's Fifth Symphony he wears his Russian heart on his sleeve, the luscious tunes and opulent waltz of the middle movements of the piece giving way to red-blooded energy and power in the finale. Virtuoso violinist Jennifer Pike joins the orchestra for Bruch's lyrical and dance-infused First Violin Concerto, and the programme opens with one of Rossini's most sparkling overtures.
