Korngold, best known for his sweeping Hollywood film scores, lent a similar cinematic feeling to his Violin Concerto; themes from his movies appear in each of its three movements. And Tchaikovsky’s "Pathétique," one of the most popular symphonies ever written, gives itself over entirely to emotion, tragedy, and passion.

Skride brought a wide tonal palette to her insightful and passionate interpretation, her tone...open, then sweet, gossamer, and brash. ”
