Tchaikovsky: Symphony No. 6 "Pathétique" (CD)

Boston Symphony Orchestra


Pierre Monteux became Music Director of the Boston Symphony in 1919 and conducted his last concert with the orchestra in December 1963.

His recordings are confined almost exclusively to the 1950s, including distinguished and distinctive performances of Tchaikovsky's last three symphonies. The 'Pathétique' here receives a sweeping and dramatic approach, full of vivid orchestral detail and romantic fervor.
