Tchaikovsky composed his 6th symphony between February and August of 1893 and conducted the premiere on October 28th – just nine days before he died. That Tchaikovsky’s life had a tragic component, is beyond question. What he bequeathed to the world in hislast symphony, in the fourth movement especially, is a musical conduit through which we may grieve. The expressiveness of the writing brings us face-to-face with Tchaikovsky’s despair… and our own. In this two-part series, Maestro Maull will look inside at some of the rich musical details. This episode is additionally sponsored by Bruce Hogg.
