A feuding dialogue between our dreams and reality sits deep within all of us. Tchaikovsky was no different; his Fourth Symphony’s stark and oppressive opening presenting a world of private troubles to be overcome. From turbulent skirmishes, the music culminates with a call to go out among the people for inspiration – but do their voices help or hinder? Meanwhile, Dvořák’s lyrical mass reflects his love of nature, capturing hints of the landscape that surrounded him while composing.
We join the remarkable students of Cardinal Vaughan Memorial School - annually mentored by their Southbank Sinfonia counterparts - to create an orchestra of symphonic proportions. The school’s acclaimed choir have toured worldwide and featured on the Oscar-winning score for Life of Pi.
