A European Christmas: Hansel and Gretel & Tchaikovsky’s Fifth
Excerpts from Hansel and Gretel
Symphony No. 5
Constantin Trinks won many fans on his previous visits to Vancouver. His deft phrasing and attention to detail will let the drama of this program shine. Humperdinck’s Hansel and Gretel is a European Christmas classic. Paired with Tchaikovsky’s splendid 5th Symphony, this will certainly be a festive treat.
“…a unique ability to evoke the most passionate emotions at even the most moderate tempi, allowing the music to naturally seep right under your skin.” — Online Musik Magazine on Trinks
