Following the sell-out success of Eroica Unwrapped, presented by Classic FM’s John Suchet last year, and Elgar Unwrapped in June 2017, Southampton’s professional orchestra focus on the music of Tchaikovsky. Joined by pianist and broadcaster David Owen Norris, SÓN provide their audience with a deeper understanding of the Russian composer’s magnificent Symphony No 5. The orchestra delve under the surface of this superb masterpiece in search of the man and his music, with live extracts from both the piano and orchestra, before giving a complete performance of this awe-inspiring work in the second half.
Stunning…they play with passion and commitment, and I enjoyed every minute of working with them. John Suchet
