When a composer asks for his music to be played ‘with passion and desire’, you know you’re in for an adventure. Pulsing with emotion and packed with unforgettable tunes, Tchaikovsky’s Fifth Symphony is just about as romantic as music gets, and Tianyi Lu and the RSNO will live every note. But there’s no emotion that music can’t express – and this joyous overture by Fanny Hensel (better known by her maiden name of Mendelssohn) is powered by pure sunshine.
