Tchaikovsky Symphony No.6
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).
