Nine days before his death, Pyotr Tchaikovsky's last work was premiered: Symphony No. 6 in B minor, Op. 74, "Pathétique". The last movement leads, sublimely and inevitably, to a faraway place, within the music you can hear something coming to an end. Already in the first movement, there is a mourning motif, then the orchestra rears up mightily, dances amorous waltz melodies in the second movement and celebrates a march that descends into madness in the third. The finale of the Tchaikovsky cycle with Philippe Jordan and the Orchestre de l ' Opéra national de Paris, recorded in Paris in the 2017-2018 season.
