Schumann Overture: Manfred 
Tchaikovsky Violin Concerto
Schumann Symphony No.2

Tchaikovsky composed his Violin Concerto in the aftermath of escaping a disastrous and ill-advised marriage after just nine weeks. The outer movements see sparks of excitement and virtuosity fly, whilst the Adagio is beautifully lyrical and full of melancholy. Guy Braunstein explores this work with the Ulster Orchestra.

“His playing revealed the soul of a poet… Braunstein’s performance of the Tchaikovsky Violin Concerto won many admirers; it eschewed outward glamour but got to the heart of the work.” (Birmingham Post)

Schumann’s Second Symphony looks to Bach counterpoint and the songs of Beethoven for its inspiration and is awash with blazing colours and ferocious emotional intensity – a reflection of the fact that Schumann, too, was writing at a time of great personal turmoil.
