TCHAIKOVSKY'S SERENADE RELEASED ON JULY 7TH
Tchaikovsky's Serenade for Strings is one of the most loved pieces for string orchestra. Combining the energy of Russian folk music with irrepressible warmth and feeling, this is music that was written from the heart.
Under the direction of Artistic Director Richard Tognetti, the ACO brings this magnificent music to life in their latest StudioCasts film, Tchaikovsky's Serenade, directed by Matisse Ruby, with cinematography by Tyson Perkins and Drew English.
The film also includes performances of music by Ruth Crawford Seeger and George Walker, the first African-American to have won the Pulitzer Prize for Music, and the sublime Andante Cantabile from Tchaikovsky's String Quartet No.1, featuring Principal Cello Timo-Veikko Valve as soloist.
