Tugan Sokhiev conducts music from “Swan Lake”

Peter Tchaikovsky’s music for Swan Lake is characterized by the contrast between radiant elegance on the one hand and the dark tones of a tragic fairy tale on the other. For his guest appearance, Tugan Sokhiev has chosen excerpts from the score that have made a deep impression on him. Drama and dazzling beauty also converge in the Cello Concerto by the high Romantic French composer Édouard Lalo. The solo part, in particular, is splendid; at times it sings tenderly, at times it seems to tell a story. It will be interpreted by Bruno Delepelaire, first principal cellist of the Berliner Philharmoniker.
