Tchaikovsky Symphony No. 5
Nathalie Stutzmann conducts an beloved piece: Tchaikovsky's Symphony No. 5.
Pyotr Tchaikovsky composed his fifth symphony in the summer of 1888; during the spring, he had complained to his brother of a lack of inspiration: “Am I burned out? No ideas, no desire?” But the fifth symphony is a vital, emotional and in many respects brilliant symphony. It was premiered at the Mariinsky Theatre in Saint Petersburg on 17 November 1888, conducted by the composer.
The Royal Stockholm Philharmonic Orchestra will be conducted by French Nathalie Stutzmann, a regularly appearing and popular guest of the orchestra. She is famed for her parallel careers as an alto soloist and a conductor and she regularly leads the most prominent international orchestras. She is chief conductor of the RTÉ National Symphony Orchestra in Dublin, Ireland, and the Kristiansand Symphony Orchestra in Norway.
