Akimenko Angel; Poem Nocturne

Arutiunian Trumpet Concerto

Tchaikovsky Symphony No.2 ‘Little Russian’

Martyn Brabbins Conductor

Chris Avison Trumpet

Join Kirill on a tour of Armenia and Ukraine starting with little-known Theodore Akimenko’s luscious tone poem. From its beginning Arutiunian’s Trumpet Concerto has an unmistakable oriental flavour. Rooted in Armenian folk music, themes are reminiscent of both Khachaturian and Shostakovich. Tchaikovsky was visiting his sister in Ukraine (known as Little Russia during the Tsarist period) when he began work on his Second Symphony, influenced by Glinka’s use of folksongs which he considered to be fundamental to Russian symphonic music.
