Try your best to hold it together in Tchaikovsky’s Serenade! Though strings are the only instruments you’ll hear, they will move as one through music that carries the weight of our most profound emotions. It could be the most intense two musical minutes of your life – so you’re bound to welcome the relief of the carefree and graceful dances that follow. Our woodwind instruments come to the fore in Strauss’ Symphony for Winds, which is light and lyrical despite the extraordinary fact that he worked on the piece during the final stages of World War II.
