Tchaikovsky’s love for Robert Schumann went way beyond admiration for a great Romantic master. It was an acknowledgement of spiritual kinship, of the debt owed by one hyper-sensitive, striving soul to another. In placing Tchaikovsky and Schumann side by side, this concert reveals significant things about the two composers, both as artists and as men. At the same time, it’s a musical feast.
This concert features Tolga Atalay Ün and Viktoria Khoroshunova, two prize-winning participants in last summer’s Musical Odyssey masterclasses – summer courses with a difference, offering intensive tutoring from leading musicians and teachers, public performances and various prizes, including sponsored concert engagements.

The music performed in this concert will be introduced by Stephen Johnson.
