BARTOK / TCHAIKOVSKY CONCERT & LIVESTREAM
The Tchaikovsky Fifth Symphony is, of course, a great favorite with audiences, and, securely tucked into the category of “romantic blockbuster,” is known to just about everybody. It is also, if truth be told, one of the most hackneyed pieces in the entire repertory. But Mr. Zander's take on the piece is bracing and fresh. He has performed it many times, in many parts of the world, and always audiences are stirred by the experience of having the familiar made new again.
