At the dawn of a new century, Alexander Scriabin saw wondrous musical visions – but then, he was standing on the shoulders of giants. Don’t be misled by the name ‘Pathétique’: Tchaikovsky’s blazing, autobiographical final symphony summed up a century of Russian music, and is still one of the classical concert hall’s most uncompromising emotional experiences. As we start our new season, Vladimir Jurowski and the LPO gaze forward and backward, paying homage to a great friend, the late Oliver Knussen, and exploring one of British music’s most powerful 20th-century masterpieces with Julia Fischer.
