But also America, a land of disappointed hopes, of forced exile, where our memories of home are confronted with a new culture to which we must adapt.
It is to this ambivalent America that Les Dissonances - without a leader as usual...

TCHAIKOVSKY: SYMPHONY NO. 4, OP.36 IN F MINOR // 44' - 2016

Dedicated to Tchaikovsky’s platonic muse (and wealthy patroness) Nadezhda von Meck, the Fourth Symphony conceals a hidden programme, which the composer explained in a letter to his friend. The main idea of the work, the kernel of the whole score, appears at the opening: "Fatum, that fatal power which prevents one from attaining the goal of happiness, which jealously ensures that peace and happiness shall not be complete and unclouded (...) unwaveringly, constantly poisoning the soul."
