Scriabin’s Rêverie is packed full of beautifully crafted orchestral colour and texture. Luscious harmonies interweave to create a swirling dreamscape that ebbs and flows mysteriously.

More akin to a symphony, Shostakovich’s daring First Violin Concerto is a real tour de force. Calling on everything in the violinist’s technical arsenal as well as vast physical and emotional stamina, its wide emotional range encompasses brooding, elegiac melancholy with savage, mocking sarcasm.

Tchaikovsky’s turbulent, but finally triumphant, Fourth Symphony is considered a landmark of Russian music, a truly thrilling work brimming with energy and tension which forces the orchestra to bend to its language.
