Tchaikovsky Symphony No. 6 “Pathétique”

The Russian word “Pathétique” means passionate or emotional, but is sometimes mistranslated to mean evoking pity. The first performance of Symphony No. 6 “Pathétique” was certainly a pity, as Tchaikovsky led it just nine days before his death and 21 days later it was performed in his memory. Declaring he put his “whole soul into this work,” Tchaikovsky introduced a radical new concept deviating from the optimistic model of light over dark, and instead ends the composition in bleak minor chords. Pieces such as “Pathétique” formed a narrative or story to engage listeners, just as it’s sure to engage you.

Individuals ages five and older are welcome at this performance. Parents should ensure their children are able to sit quietly through the performance without disturbing others around them. No babes in arms will be admitted.
