A series of one-hour concerts introduced by Radio 3 ‘Sunday Morning’ presenter Sarah Walker, including works by Tchaikovsky, Mozart, Beethoven, Britten, Schumann, Bizet, Rimsky-Korsakov and Rachmaninov.

Lyrical, romantic, and like so much of his music very often shot through with melancholy, Tchaikovsky’s songs are some of his most profound outpourings. He wrote around 100 in total, setting texts by great poets including Tolstoy and Goethe, as well as by a host of lesser known writers. In the course of a day, masterminded by pianist Anna Tilbrook, four of today’s most exciting young singers will take us on a journey through this rich treasure trove of music. And alongside Tchaikovsky’s own works we’ll hear songs by composers he loved and was inspired by, those he influenced, and his colleagues and friends.

Recorded for broadcast on BBC Radio 3.
