Järvi, Paavo; Tonhalle-Orchester Zürich

The Estonian conductor Paavo Järvi and the Tonhalle-Orchester Zürich continue their journey through Tchaikovsky’s symphonic works. This fourth volume opens with the Symphony no.1 (1866), subtitled ‘Winter Daydreams’. He wrote his first essay in the symphonic genre just after his appointment to a teaching post at the Moscow Conservatory, and it earned him lasting success. Indeed, he retained a lifelong attachment to the piece, asserting that it was superior in substance to all his more mature symphonic works. The program continues with one of the Russian composer's most famous pieces, the Capriccio italien (1880). Conceived as a musical travelogue, this symphonic poem is a genuine tribute to Italian folk melodies. The triptych offered by this volume is rounded off by the Waltz from the opera Eugene Onegin (1879).
