National Symphony Orchestra’s Tchaikovsky Cycle will be at National Concert Hall (國家音樂廳; No.21-1, Zhongshan S. Rd., Zhongzheng District, Taipei [台北市中山南路21-1號]; Tel: (02) 3393-9999) on September 9 and 30. September 9 features Tchaikovsky’s Nutcracker Suite, Op. 71a; Piano Concerto No. 1 in B flat minor, Op. 23; Symphony No. 4 in F minor, Op. 36 (44’). September 30 features Tchaikovsky’s Pique Dame Overture; Capriccio Italien, Op. 45; Sleeping Beauty Suite, Op. 66a; Rachmaninoff: Piano Concerto No. 2 in C minor, Op. 18. Tchaikovsky was a Russian composer of the Romantic era. While not part of the nationalistic music group “The Russian Five”, Tchaikovsky wrote music now known and loved for its distinctly Russian character, rich harmonies and stirring melodies. His works, however, are much more western than those of his Russian contemporaries as he effectively uses international elements in addition to national folk melodies. As biographer Anthony Holden maintains, no indigenous tradition of Russian music existed before Tchaikovsky’s birth in 1840 other than folk tunes and a cappella music for the Russian Orthodox Church. In 1913, twenty years after Tchaikovsky’s death, Igor Stravinsky’s The Rite of Spring erupted onto the musical scene, signalling Russia’s arrival into 20th century music. Between these two very different worlds Tchaikovsky’s music became the sole bridge.Tchaikovsky was perhaps the first Russian composer to think seriously about his country’s place in European musical culture. As he wrote to his patroness, Nadezhda von Meck, from Paris, “How pleasant it is to be convinced firsthand of the success of our literature in France. Every book etalage displays translations of Tolstoy, Turgenev, and Dostoevsky.... The newspapers are constantly printing rapturous articles about one or another of these writers. Perhaps such a time will come for Russian music as well!” With this in mind, Tchaikovsky became the first Russian composer to personally acquaint foreign audiences with his own works, as well as those of other Russian composers, after conquering an initial fear of conducting. He also formed close business and personal ties with many of the leading musicians of Europe and the United States. For Russians, this was all something new and unusual.Tickets are NT$300, NT$500, NT$800, NT$1000, NT$1200, NT$1500, available through www.artsticket.com.tw or call (02) 3393-9888.
