TCHAIKOVSKY Serenade for Strings
Over the years, the Strings of the TSO have built up an enviable reputation, delivering sensational performances in a wide variety of repertoire. Renowned for their versatility, the TSO Strings can be powerful and incisive as well as warm and soulful. They deliver the strength of an orchestra and the finesse of a chamber ensemble – the best of both worlds.
This concert showcases the TSO Strings under Chief Conductor and Artistic Director, Eivind Aadland. Bookended by two robust works – Elgar’s Introduction and Allegro and Tchaikovsky’s Serenade – the concert includes Arvo Pärt’s haunting Cantus in memoriam Benjamin Britten and charming, folk-inspired works by Grieg.
"The Strings of the TSO perform gorgeous music by Tchaikovsky, Elgar and Arvo Pärt."
