In the late 1880s, Tchaikovsky felt himself suddenly free from the catastrophes that were haunting his private life and carving a tragic path through his career. In the new symphony taking shape on the composer’s desk, the music felt this ease in suffering too. Light floods the textures of the exquisite Fifth Symphony while hopeful melodies invade its dark corners.

Before it, we are treated to a concerto performance from the winner of the Norwegian Soloist’s Prize, violinist Johan Dalene. The concert opens with a selection of Grieg’s iconic piano miniatures the Lyric Pieces, but not as you’ve heard them before. No piano, but tantalizing new orchestral arrangements by the Norwegian composer Ørjan Matre.
