Tchaikovsky Symphony No.6

Part of International Organ Series

The Philharmonia Orchestra performs Tchaikovsky's moving Sixth Symphony, conducted by Tugan Sokhiev.

Dark, restless and with flashes of fury, Tchaikovsky wrote to his friend the Grand Duke of Constantine about what was to be his final symphony: 'without exaggeration, I have put my whole soul into this work'.

Alongside, Dvorák's Cello Concerto pays tribute to the composer's lost love, Josefina, as he builds the elegiac slow movement around a line from one of

Josefina's favourite Dvorák's songs, Kéz duch muj sám (Leave me alone).
