The Symphony No. 6 in B minor, Op. 74, also known as the Pathétique Symphony, is Pyotr Ilyich Tchaikovsky's final completed symphony, written between February and the end of August 1893. The composer entitled the work "The Passionate Symphony", employing a Russian word, Патетическая (Pateticheskaya), meaning "passionate" or "emotional", that was then (mis-)translated into French as pathétique, meaning "solemn" or "emotive".

This first release showcases Tchaikovsky’s greatest Symphony, the Pathétique. Tchaikovsky himself felt that his Sixth Symphony, a confident and dramatic work, was the best thing I have composed. This outstanding recording is paired with Tchaikovsky’s magical Fantasy Overture, Romeo & Juliet. The first of three Tchaikovsky Project concerts takes place in London in October 2016. In January/February 2017, Bychkov takes the project to New York. Two years later, having been denied his prize of conducting the Leningrad Philharmonic Orchestra, he left the former Soviet Union where, from the age of five, he had been singled out for an extraordinarily privileged education in music.

Tchaikovsky: Symphony No. 6 "Pathetique"; Romeo & Juliet. He plays it fast, but not too fast, and the excitement that he and the London SO create has to be heard to be believed. It becomes literally a rush to the finish and the final reworking of the main theme has never sounded so good as in this recording. The sound quality is just unbelievable for a recording this old (1961).
