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. Volume 1 marks the start of Decca’s first Tchaikovsky cycle for nearly 40 years (and the first in high-definiton 96k/24bit sound).
Tchaikovsky composed this music between February and August 1893, and conducted the first performance on October 28 of that year in St. Petersburg. Already in 1890 Tchaikovsky had written to his patroness of 13 years, Nadezhda von Meck, about a possible "program symphony. By 1893 he was ready to follow through on the idea, dedicated to his nephew Vladimir Davidov, the "Bobyk" (or "Bob") of many diary-entries and letters during the 1880s. After a successful premiere, however, he was not satisfied with Program Symphony (No. 6) on the title page.
