Tchaikovsky’s fourth symphony, often called “Fateful,” is a work of intricate musical design, where melodic motifs are joined together to form a towering structure of orchestral sounds.

Renowned American pianist Stephen Prutsman has been described as one of the most innovative musicians of his time. He joins the orchestra for a performance of Tchaikovsky’s sweeping Piano Concerto No. 1.
