Tasmania Symphony Orchestra - At The Ballet
Some of the most tuneful music ever written belongs to Tchaikovsky’s ballets. Swan Lake and The Sleeping Beauty are among the favourite works by this all-time favourite composer. A different kind of tunefulness pervades Samuel Barber’s Cello Concerto, a work that was once likened by American commentator Virgil Thomson to a concerto by Brahms. Acclaimed Swedish cellist Torleif Thedéen makes his TSO debut performing this compelling work. The concert gets off to a lively start with a riotous orchestral showpiece, Dvořák’s Carnival overture.
