Music and the Mind Series 


Coming up this week

Monday 18th February 

It was only after Tchaikovsky’s death that his fifth symphony grew in popularity. Audiences and critics alike acknowledged Tchaikovsky’s great skill as an orchestrator and his powerful evocation of the idea of fate throughout the symphony. Today, it stands as one of his most loved symphonies. We’ll hear it performed by the San Francisco Symphony Orchestra.

Something worth listening out for! Alexander Barantschik plays a 1742 Guarnerius del Gesù violin. Once owned by the virtuoso Ferdinand David, who is believed to have played it in the world premiere of the Mendelssohn Violin Concerto in 1845, it was also the favourite instrument of the legendary Jascha Heifetz, who acquired it in 1922. Hear Barantschik playing two Beethoven Romances on today’s Full Score.

Thursday 21st February 

Fact of the day: Did you know that Berlioz wrote a part in his Symphonie Fantastique for the bass ophicleide, a brass instrument that looks like a cross between a bassoon and saxophone, with long, cone-shaped tubing and a mouthpiece similar to a trombone’s. Nowadays the part is played by the tuba. Tune in to the Full Score for the San Francisco Symphony’s rendition of this great work. 

Prokofiev: Violin Concerto No.1 in D Op.19 
Julia Fischer (violin) 
Berlioz: Symphonie fantastique Op.14 
San Francisco Symphony Orchestra 
Michael Tilson Thomas (conductor)
