維尼奧夫斯基:第一號小提琴協奏曲
柴科夫斯基:第三號交響曲

俄羅斯與波蘭在歷史上雖恩怨難解,文化上因位置毗鄰、血緣相近,經常往來互動。波蘭裔小提琴巨擘維尼奧夫斯基,於聖彼得堡音樂院作育英才,開啟「俄國小提琴學派」。而柴科夫斯基第三交響曲中的波蘭舞曲則讓此作被暱稱《波蘭》。NSO 將兩者之作並列,解讀因交流激發出的火花。被喻為「帕格尼尼再世」的維尼奧夫斯基八歲時被巴黎音樂院破格錄取,11 歲畢業。17 歲時完成第一號小提琴協奏曲,對他易如反掌的技法,對獨奏者則構成莫大的挑戰,特別是第一樂章的雙音及輝煌的裝飾樂段。輕聲呢喃而有「祈禱」之稱的第二樂章夾在前後兩個光芒四射的樂章之間,留給聆者片段舒緩的空間。第三交響曲在柴科夫斯基同類作品中獨具一格,唯一使用大調,並包含五個樂章。柴科夫斯基仰慕舒曼,此曲的五樂章形式及曲中開朗樂觀的氣氛,明顯受後者同為第三號的《萊茵》交響曲影響。音樂學者曾表示,若舒曼是俄國人,他也會有相同的樂念。

Henryk Wieniawski:Violin Concerto No.1 in F-sharp minor, Op.14
Pyotr Ilyich Tchaikovsky:Symphony No.3 in D major, Op.29

Russian-Polish relations have had a long and turbulent history. As neighbors, Russians and Poles share linguistic roots and other cultural bonds. Interchanges between these two countries are frequent, including with classical music talents. Wieniawski, the virtuoso violinist of Poland, taught at the St. Petersburg Conservatory and inaugurated the "Russian Violin School". Tchaikovsky, a Russian composer, employed the traditional polonaise in his third symphony, which gave the work the nickname“Polish”. Performing both composers' pieces in one concert, the NSO will reveal the sparks ignited by these cultural exchanges. Wieniawski, regarded as the ‘reincarnation of Paganini’, was admitted into the Paris Conservatory at the age of eight (the school making an exception for his age in accepting him) and graduated at 11. His first violin concerto, written at 17, contains passages of extreme virtuosity, particularly involving the multiple-stop technique and brilliant cadenza in the first movement, challenging for most soloists and yet a clear demonstration of his technical prowess. The second movement, Preghiera (Prayer), a short lyrical interlude with echoes of its two brilliant surrounding movements which bring relaxation. Tchaikovsky’s third symphony is a unique one in his symphonic oeuvre. It’s the only one in a major key and comprises five movements. Tchaikovsky adored

Schumann’s works. The adoption of five movements and tone of exultant optimism in the third symphony were undoubtedly influenced by the German composer's third symphony Rhenish.
