Both Tchaikovsiy and Bethoveen are often hailed as great symphonic composers. And actually, symphonist is not a composer who follow the rules of writing symphonies, but a real artist with a unique polyphonic way of thinking. Thus, he or she raises universal problems, like artists’ relations with universe, cosmos, and merciless Fatum. It’s the theme of that senseless but mocking destiny that goes through either Beethoven’s Fifth and Tchaikovsky’s Fourth.

Beethoven feels his deafness coming, but he writes to his friend: “You’d better see me happy, as those like me should be in this lifetime, but not miserable, no! For me it’s just intolerable! I’ll take my destiny by the throat, it won’t break me. Oh, it would have been so great, to live thousands lives! As for a calm existence – no, I don’t feel like it, I’m not made this way”.

Totally devastated Tchaikovsky is alone in the crowd of incomprehensible, though painfully loved, mankind: “If you can’t find joy inside yourself”, he writes to Nadezhda Mekk about the plot of the symphony, “than you’d better look at other people. Meet your people, see what fun they have, and how they can hang on to that feeling. … Have fun with other people’s fun. Yes, it’s possible to live, anyway”.

Andrey Boreyko, who used to work with many leading collectives of the world, including long years tenure with RNO, tends to carefully design his concerts’ programmes. There’s always a certain theme in it. In mid-1990’s, he was awarded a prize for innovations by the Association of German Music Critics; that time he worked with Jena Philharmonic Orchestra. It is him who would create symphonic portraits of two artists: so different, yet very similar in their fight with destiny.

Recently, Boreyko has been appointed the chief of Warszaw Philharmony Orchestra, yet he remains a “world conductor”. He simply likes touring: it gives him freedom to choose what to play and plan as many rehearsals as he consideres necessary.
