North Carolina Symphony Classical Series: Tchaikovsky Pathetique


The “Pathétique” Symphony has been shrouded in mystery ever since Tchaikovsky’s mysterious death just days after its premiere. One thing is certain—he put his soul into his final symphony, and there it remains. Florence Price’s thrilling Piano Concerto is infused with the influence of her African-American roots, and Beethoven’s Leonore Overture No. 3 bursts with operatic drama.
