The Fifth Symphony by Pyotr Tchaikovsky from the 2017-2018 symphony cycle with Philippe Jordan and the Orchestre de l'Opéra national de Paris. Ten years passed between the completion of the Fourth and the Fifth – Tchaikovsky, eternally plagued by doubt, had said that he had "written enough". With the Fifth Symphony things then happened very quickly: Within a few weeks, he finished the score at his vacation home. The reaction at the premiere was restrained, and Tchaikovsky described the symphony as a failure. Today, it is considered to be one of the composer's most popular symphonies: A wistful "Fate" motif pervades the structure of the piece, giving it its nickname. At the end, a brightening, elation; a monumental Tchaikovsky finale.
