Notes & Reviews:

Of his Symphony No. 6, Pyotr Illyich Tchaikovsky wrote, "But I absolutely consider it to be the best, and in particular, the most sincere of all my creations. I love it as I have never loved any of my other musical offspring." Tchaikovsky's Symphony No. 6 was the composer's final completed symphony. He led the premiere performance in October of 1893, only nine days before his death. This release also includes the world premiere recording of the "Rusalka Fantasy." This orchestral suite is taken from Dvorak's opera by Manfred Honeck and Tomas Ille. Performing these works is the Pittsburgh Symphony Orchestra, which has a long and rich history of touting the world's finest musicians and conductors. This is the fifth release in the well-received Pittsburgh Live! Series.
