Khachaturian Three movements from Spartacus 
James MacMillan Three Scottish Songs 
Tchaikovsky Symphony No4 

Alexander Lazarev Conductor 
Karen Cargill Mezzo-soprano 

For Tchaikovsky, music was personal: and when a savage fanfare blasts out at the start of his Fourth Symphony, you can sense straight away there’s more at stake here than meets the ear. Tempestuous, impassioned and packed with glorious melodies, it never fails to make an impact – especially when conducted by the RSNO’s Conductor Emeritus, Alexander Lazarev. First though, enjoy Khachaturian’s fabulously tuneful Spartacus, and something from a bit closer to home, sung by Scotland’s one and only Karen Cargill.
