- Michael Sanderling conductor
Destiny: the fatal power that stands as a threat between human beings and their happiness. Anger and jealousy put a spanner in the works and always cast a dark shadow. This timeless theme also figures in Tchaikovsky’s 4th Symphony. As turbulent as his life, the work shows the composer alternating between heart-rending romanticism and subdued classicism – expressive, personal and unconventional.
