    Classics III Tchaikovsky's Winter Dreams

    Great Expressions of Russian Romanticism

    Jung-Ho Pak, Conductor - Martina Filjak, Piano
    Mesmerizing melodies and gentle romantic expressions evoked by Tchaikovsky’s first symphony and concerto passionately expressed by pianist Martina Filak.

    Invoking tranquil wintry images, Tchaikovsky’s First Symphony, “Winter Dreams,” unfolds with a dreamy quality that is mesmerizing in its gentleness and melodic flow. The lovely main theme, first heard on the oboe, is one of the composer’s most attractive creations from his early career. Tchaikovsky’s First Piano Concerto, composed later in his life, stands as one of the great expressions of Russian Romanticism in music. Its melodiousness, colorful instrumentation and brilliant writing for the solo instrument are passionately expressed by the enchanting pianist Martina Filjak. Stravinsky’s Greeting Prelude sends a delightfully witty birthday wish.

    Igor Stravinsky - Greeting Prelude (after C.F. Summy's Happy Birthday)
    Piotr Ilyich Tchaikovsky - Symphony No. 1 in G minor, Op. 13, “Winter Dreams” - Concerto No. 1 in B flat minor for Piano and Orchestra, Op. 23

    Martina Filjak, Piano
