- In Ireland
- Symphony No. 6 (Pathétique)
- Margaret Cornils Luke
- Christopher Petrie
Hot on the heels of recording sessions for Centaur Records USA, the Philharmonic Chamber Orchestra of London presents the UK debut of American flautist Margaret Cornils Luke. The first half consists of a selection of the works for flute and orchestra that will appear on CD, many of which are rarely performed gems of the repertoire.
Following the interval the PCOL performs Tchaikovsky’s monumental Sixth Symphony. Regarded by many to be his greatest work and arguably the greatest Russian symphony ever written, Tchaikovsky described it as ‘the best thing I have composed’. The work has become a much-loved part of the repertoire due to its sweeping melodies, boundless energy, and dark conclusion.
