GLAZUNOV Quintet in A Op.39
GLAZUNOV Rêverie in D flat for horn and piano
GLAZUNOV Idyll for horn and string quartet
TCHAIKOVSKY Piano Trio in A minor Op.50
We launch our feast of wonderful Russian music with an unashamedly romantic programme. Glazunov’s music owes something to numerous traditions: Balakirev’s nationalism, Borodin’s epic grandeur, Rimsky-Korsakov’s virtuosity and the lyrical mastery of Tchaikovsky.
Tchaikovsky’s monumental and magisterial Piano Trio was conceived on a scale not far-removed from his Symphonies; it is the work of a composer at the very peak of his creative powers.
