    The composer's youthful work, Grieg's Piano Concerto is also the only concerto he completed. A romantic masterpiece, the three movements of this concerto - performed brilliantly by the German pianist Alice Sara Ott - take us on a journey to the Norwegian plains, particularly dear to Grieg.

    Then it's time for Tchaikovsky's Symphony No. 5: although eleven years separate it from his fourth symphony, both share a recurring, almost inexorable motif: Providence, or "fatum", in the composer's own words. Alexandre Bloch, who is celebrating his 8th and final season as musical director of the symphonic phalanx, thus offers one of the greatest pages of the Russian repertoire, which first plunges us into darkness, before then allowing a dazzling light in the last movement.
