About this Recording

MUSICAL JOURNEY (A) - RUSSIA / UKRAINE: St. Petersburg / Crimea / Odessa (NTSC)

RUSSIA / UKRAINE

The Places

The places visited include St Petersburg, Peter the Great's new westward-looking capital, and the traditional capital, Moscow. In Ukraine we see Odessa with the famous Potemkin Steps and something of the surrounding countryside of a region that for long offered holiday resorts to those living in Moscow or St Petersburg.

The Music

The music of the Russian composer Tchaikovsky has come to enjoy wide popularity throughout the world. He lived at a time when composers were creating a new national form of Russian music, and this element of national inspiration he was able to combine with a sound and acceptable command of technique and particularly of colourful orchestration. His Symphony No. 6, “Pathetique”, was the last of his symphonies, first performed a few days before his sudden and unexpected death in 1893, which it seemed to portend. Other music consists of two dances from his opera Eugene Onegin, elements that have a poignant part to play in the drama.
