the music

To explain how he manages to find inspiration, the Spanish conductor Juanjo Mena says: "I have to be in touch with every little detail of life... to better understand what it is like to be human". This is both a piece of life advice and a key to listening. Indeed, it is by observing the details of Inmo Yang's breathtaking violin technique that one discovers the greatness of Paganini's works. Attention to detail is all the more interesting when the work played is known to us: this is the case with Tchaikovsky's last symphony, performed in November, which we are listening to today towards the end of the season.
