An NCPA Presentation

Tchaikovsky: Symphony No. 4

In this series of talks on Western classical music, Dr. Cavas Bilimoria takes listeners through musical concepts, the lives of composers and their famous works, sprinkled with examples of recorded music. In the first set of talks this month, Dr. Bilimoria will discuss Tchaikovsky’s Symphony No. 4. The composition synthesises the many expressive elements close to his heart—his love for Beethoven’s work, folk music, the Russian countryside and the extremes of joy and angst that were fundamental to his expressive voice. The piece also bore a dedication “to my best friend,” a reference to Nadezhda von Meck, a wealthy patron whom Tchaikovsky never met but had close correspondence with.
