Symphony No. 8 (Unfinished)
Tchaikovsky Variations on a Rococo Theme
Dvorák Symphony No. 7

Royal Philharmonic Orchestra
Laura van der Heijden cello Christoph Koenig conductor

Intrigue and mystery envelope Schubert’s Symphony No. 8, ‘Unfinished’, for which only two movements were completed. It stretches beyond elegant, balanced Classicism and opens with a ghostly pianissimo in the low strings. Although the name Tchaikovsky prompts memories of alluring romantic melodies and powerful orchestral works, he was a composer who revered Mozart above all others. This love influenced Tchaikovsky to write Variations on a Rococo Theme, performed tonight by enchanting British cellist Laura van der Heijden.

Dvorák hoped that his impassioned Symphony No. 7, inspired by past sorrows and love for his Czech homeland, would be ‘capable of stirring the world’.
