Names can be deceptive: Pathétique actually means ‘full of emotion’ and from first note to last, Tchaikovsky’s heart-rending Sixth Symphony is exactly that. As former Bolshoi music director, Alexander Vedernikov has this music in his blood: expect raw feeling, great melodies and Russian flair by the bucket-load as he teams up with CBSO Artist in Residence Steven Osborne in Rachmaninov’s best-loved piano concerto.
