Conductor Errante describes the Tchaikovsky Symphony No. 6 as "a roller-coaster ride of emotions, from deepest despair to jubilance, with just about everything in between." Tchaikovsky termed the work “the best thing I have ever written”, and conducted its premiere just nine days before his untimely death.
20th-century Russian composer Sergey Prokofiev shows his lyrical side in the tuneful Violin Concerto No. 2 in what promises to be a brilliant performance by guest artist Fabián López.
