“What Makes It Great?”

TCHAIKOVSKY Serenade for Strings in C Major, Op. 48

In this exploration of one of Tchaikovsky’s most beautiful pieces, host Rob Kapilow takes on the many misconceptions we have about this legendary composer. Though today we think of him as the quintessential Russian nationalist composer, Tchaikovsky considered himself European and dismissed Russian composers as amateurs and dilettantes. He’s labeled as a Romantic, yet he used the most technically sophisticated European compositional techniques and forms. You’ll gain a whole new context for listening to the works of Tchaikovsky, whose turbulent life and mysterious death make him one of the 19th century’s most intriguing personalities.
