Great Mountains Festival - Tchaikovsky and Stravinsky

Great Mountains Festival from Pyeongchang, South Korea, home of the 2018 Winter Olympics and Paralympics. Music by Tchaikovsky, Stravinsky and Tabakova. With Sarah Walker.

Sarah Walker presents highlights from the Great Mountains Festival from Pyeongchang, South Korea, home of the 2018 Winter Olympics and Paralympics.

In today's programme, Tchaikovsky's first String Quartet, an outpouring of melodies and original home of his famous 'Andante Cantabile' - a folk tune he had heard whistled by a decorator at his sister's house, which later moved Tolstoy to tears. That's followed by Stravinsky's suite from his music drama piece 'A Soldier's Tale' in which the soldier swaps his violin with the devil. And to end A suite in Jazz Style by contemporary composer Dobrinka Tabakova, who wrote this for today's performer Maxim Rysanov.
