‘Superbly graceful’ was how The Times described Jennifer Pike’s 2016 performance of Tchaikovsky’s Violin Concerto with the BBC Concert Orchestra. Four years on, she performs it with the St Petersburg Symphony Orchestra in a celebration of Tchaikovsky and Prokofiev.

Full of vivid orchestral colour and repeating ‘fate’ motifs, Tchaikovsky’s Fifth Symphony is an audience favourite for a reason.

‘[A] superbly graceful virtuoso without airs or affectation’ (The Times)
