Pyotr Ilyich Tchaikovsky

No composer wrote more effectively or beautifully for strings than Peter Ilyich Tchaikovsky. We’ll hear his beloved Serenade for Strings, Op. 48 in a terrific recording that will be new to most of you and truly captures the spirit of the music. We also feature two other excellent Tchaikovsky string works, one of which is guaranteed to surprise you — in a good way.
