Symphony no. 6 (The Pathetique)
Performed by Andre Previn and the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra

For years Tchaikovsky has been frowned on by the musical establishment, for the most illogical of reasons - because he is a truly popular composer. His music is direct in its appeal, tuneful and highly emotional. Andre Previn looks at why Tchaikovsky's music holds such magic and why an audience responds to it time and time again. The Pathetique Symphony is Tchaikovsky's last composition, first performed barely a week before his mysterious and tragic death.
