Symphony no. 4, by Peter Ilyich Tchaikovsky — 2 Comments

  1. I welcome Tchaikovsky`s rather wild approach in 4 . I find any formula for a symphony rather tiresome. He lets go and bounds across his mind to release his inner self.
    His problems with his love life really lets you hear about it in the symphony. It wanders In some respect : but that is life as he found out in his life. I think his holiday to Italy opened his rather closed mind .

  2. It would be appropriate to mention that after the fourth, Tchaikowsky composed Manfred and the four orchestral suites before he wrote Symphony 5. Five and Six have very little in common with 4.
