Annual Symphonic Workshop Tchaikovsky's 6th - Pathétique
This year's symphonic workshop was at Chilton Saint James School. Participants started on a Friday evening, and it all culminated with the workshop finale, a concert in the school's Jubilee Centre.This was one of Tchaikovsky’s most inspired creations, with its first performance shortly before his death in November 1893. It derived its "Pathetique" name from the intense melancholy of the last adagio movement.
The cello cases at right appear to have a life of their own. For more on the workshop and photos go to last concert link below.
