Tchaikovsky X Drake is a symphonic synthesis that blends the music of two composer-romanticists separated by almost a century. 15 songs of Drake are woven into Tchaikovsky’s epic Fifth Symphony in every way imaginable. We hear Drake’s melodies soaring in tandem with Tchaikovsky’s; his raps motoring almost impossibly with Tchaikovsky’s rhythmic figures; then vignettes of Drake’s music with Tchaikovsky’s motives and melodies are superimposed over top. Joining the full symphony orchestra are three singers and a rapper.
