  1. Overture, from A Life for the Tsar - Mikhail Glinka
  2. Concerto for violin, cello and orchestra in A minor Op 102 - Johannes Brahms
  3. Symphony No 5 in E minor Op 64 - Pyotr Tchaikovsky

Rich in harmony and tenderness, Brahms's Double Concerto is a highlight of the 2019-2020 classical season in Reading, not to be missed. Favoured for its heart-swelling melodic balance between the cello and violin, against the abundance of the orchestra; the double concerto climaxes with joyful triumph and majesty.

The second half of this concert is dedicated to Tchaikovsky's monumental Symphony No 5. Tchaikovsky's use of the recurring Fate theme as an emotional core paints new orchestral colours in each movement with intensity and purpose. It is rightfully remembered as one of the great romantic symphonies.
