About the pieces of music:

Rossini’s Overture to Vilmos Tell, composed for his last grand opera in 1829, is a twelve-minute piece that depicts life in the Swiss Alps. The piece begins with a dawn sung by five solo cellos, followed by a storm, brass instruments, and a pastoral interlude. The overture ends with a gallop announcing the Swiss patriots’ victory over Austrian oppressors.

Max Bruch, a late romantic master, is less known in Hungary, except for his violin concerto in G minor. This piece, Op. 88, was written for his son, Max Felix Bruch, and friend Willy Hess. The piece is an intimate conversation between two instruments, with a slow movement, a faster one, and a theme inspired by the Swedish folk song “Ack Värmeland Du Sköna”.

Tchaikovsky’s Symphony No. 5, composed in 1888, explores the question of whether fate triumphs over life or vice versa. The first movement, a sonata-form, portrays Hamlet’s submission to fate, while the third movement transitions from a cheerful mood to a foreboding foreshadowing. The finale, andante, retunes the symphony’s tone to a triumphant one, affirming life and community’s power. Tchaikovsky’s message is to rejoice in the joy of others, allowing one to live longer.
