Tchaikovsky's 5th

Conducted by Lahav Shani

Program

Tchaikovsky Fifth Symphony
conductor Lahav Shani

“Little by little I hope to collect new material for a new symphony,” Tchaikovsky wrote in a letter to his brother in the spring of 1888. It was more than nine years after his Fourth and the composer was struggling with self-doubt as a result of what he describes as a 'dried-up fantasy'. Nothing could be further from the truth, because as in much of his other music, his Fifth contains beautiful melodies. Still, omnipresent fate continues to play an important role, but Tchaikovsky would not be himself if it were not matched by a glorious victory.
