Tugan Sokhiev conducts music from “Swan Lake”

Peter Tchaikovsky’s music for Swan Lake is characterized by the contrast between radiant elegance and the dark tones of a tragic fairy tale. Tugan Sokhiev has chosen excerpts from the score that have made a strong impression on him. Drama and beauty also converge in the Cello Concerto by the French Romantic composer Édouard Lalo. The solo part, played by Bruno Delepelaire, 1st principal cellist of the Berliner Philharmoniker, sings beautifully.
