Tchaikovsky’s Fifth Symphony In Images
Peter I. Tchaikovsky
Symphony No. 5 e-minor op. 64
Tchaikovsky’s fifth is a deeply emotive symphony. The motif is fate, and the driving force is the desire to overcome hopelessness. The search for a visual expression of this emotional music led Tobias Melle far into Russia, and the result is a stirring evocation of the destiny of this country and its people.
“If you make an attempt to merge Tchaikovsky’s Symphony No. 5 with a symphony of images, then please, do it like Tobias Melle … This performance got under your skin.” (Zollern-Alb Kurier)
