Event:
An unforgettable evening of pure enchanting brilliance
There is something magical about attending a live concert, especially a symphony. What made this symphony concert extra remarkable and breathtakingly beautiful was that it was performed by the amazing and extremely talented Sydney Youth Orchestra, under the direction of leading music educator and conductor Brian Buggy OAM, who performed the most personal of all his large-scale works, Tchaikovsky's 4th Symphony.

The music see-sawed with emotions and was matched with an explosion of pure excellence that was performed by the Sydney Youth Orchestra and conducted by Brian Buggy.

The Concert featured four movements:
I.Andante sostenuto- Moderato con anima
II.Andantino in modo di canzona
III.Scherzo, Pizzicato ostinato- Allegro
IV.Finale, Allegro con fuoco

The enchanting stellar performance followed Tchaikovsky's catastrophic marriage to former student Antonina Miliokova, lasting a mere two months, which Tchaikovsky made a start on his fourth symphony.

After emerging from a profound period of writer's block and battling with a heavy bout of depression, it is perhaps unsurprising that the music is urgent, supercharged and violent at points.

The opening bars of the first movement intended to represent a metaphor for Fate, or as a poor old Tchaikovsky put it: "The fatal power which prevents one from attaining the goal of happiness".

The Sydney Youth Orchestra Philharmonic tackled this extroverted and wild piece with panache and elegance. It was such a delight to watch as well as being taken into the world of feeling the music and being part of it.

It was certainly an enjoyable evening loaded with talent and emotion.
