They call D major the ‘golden’ key, the ‘key of glory’. Fitting then for a fiftieth anniversary season, two giants in D major, beginning with Beethoven’s monumental Violin Concerto, performed by one of the great modern interpreters of the piece, Armenian violinist Sergey Khachatryan.
And then, to top it all, Tchaikovsky’s five-movement Third Symphony is his only symphony written in the major key and is brim-full with exuberant optimism – a terrific showcase for the composer’s famed gift for great tunes.
