A description of the experience

 TCHAIKOVSKY: Serenade for Strings in C major, Op. 48

 

Tchaikovsky's Serenade for Strings in C major, Op. 48, premiered in 1880, remains today one of the late Romantic era's most definitive compositions. In his score, Tchaikovsky supposedly wrote, "The larger the string orchestra, the better will the composer's desires be fulfilled."  Serenade for Strings has 4 movements:

I. Pezzo i forma di sonatina: Andante non troppo; Allegro moderato; this was an homage to Mozart
II. Valse: Moderato; Tempo di valse
III. Élégie: Larghetto elegiaco
IV. Finale (Tema russo): Andante; Allegro con spirito
