Heroes and Heartache

 Joseph Swenson  Conductor 
 Yevgeny Sudbin  Piano
 BBC National Orchestra of Wales   
 Grieg  Peer Gynt, Suite No. 1, Op 46 
 Grieg   Piano Concerto in A minor
 Symphony No 6 in B minor, 'Pathétique' 


The pathos of Tchaikovsky is balanced by Grieg in the lightest of spirits. A perfect pairing. 
Tchaikovsky’s final, grief-laden symphony finds complete contrast in the life-affirming music of Grieg, with the picaresque adventures of Peer Gynt and the catchy folk song and dance of his piano concerto.

BBC NOW Pre-Concert Talk
DISCOVER MORE: The secret to a great melody
Level 1 | 6.30pm - 7pm

Tchaikovsky and Grieg share several creative traits, including the ability to craft a wonderfully memorable melody. How do they do it? We’ll discover this and more about what unites the two composers. 

This event is free for concert ticket holders.
