Tchaikovsky described his final symphony as “the best thing I ever composed or shall compose.” Known as the “Pathetique” for its brooding melancholy tone, Tchaikovsky poured his whole soul into this emotionally turbulent work. Also on the program are Strauss’ delicate waltz medley Roses from the South and Piston’s colorful and humorous Suite from The Incredible Flutist.
