Rouvali – Tchaikovsky's Pathétique & Nelson's Steampunk Blizzard
Santtu-Matias Rouvali © Gothenburg Symphony Orchestra
Tchaikovsky’s bittersweet symphony is the very essence of passion and sentiment, with emotions as naked as a bare soul. Multiform contrast is delivered by Daniel Nelson of Steampunk Blizzard, who, with motoric rhythms and industrial feel, takes us on a musical rollercoaster ride. Perfect for chief conductor Santtu-Matias Rouvali. Interviews and introduction with Gramophone's Editor-in-chief James Jolly.
