Program

TCHAIKOVSKY
Symphony No. 6, Pathétique  / 45 min

At a Glance

One of Tchaikovsky’s final pieces, and the last music he conducted in his all-too-short lifetime. Did he know it would be his swan song? Debate about that has raged since its 1893 premiere. Regardless, he poured himself into the Sixth Symphony like nothing else he’d ever created, and made it a 45-minute journey into the tenderest parts of the human heart.

Did You Know?

  • Excerpts from Tchaikovsky’s Sixth Symphony have appeared in almost a dozen different movies and were even featured in one episode of Nickelodeon’s animated show Ren & Stimpy.
  • Tchaikovsky was reticent to have his voice recorded. When asked to play something on the piano or say something for a recording, Tchaikovsky allegedly replied, “I am a bad pianist and my voice is raspy. Why should one eternalize it?”
  • Symphony in 60 gives you even more ways to enjoy your night out. $5 happy hours, tasty treats and a chance to meet the musicians of the Minnesota Orchestra.
