PASSIONS, PLEASURABLE AND PAINFUL, RUN HIGH IN THREE MAJESTIC WORKS THAT SPRING FROM THE RUSSIAN SOIL AND SOUL. Drawn from Dante’s Inferno, Tchaikovsky’s searingly tragic Francesca da Rimini tells of murdered lovers locked in poignant embrace for all eternity. Prokofiev described his mighty and moving Fifth Symphony as ‘a song of praise of free and happy mankind’, its soaring drama conjuring the moment of victory in World War II. Hideko Udagawa is sure to delight with Khachaturian’s richly characterised love song for violin and orchestra, the Concerto-Rhapsody.
