The Pathétique symphony
(Symphony No. 6 in B minor, Op. 74)
The symphony has four movements:
- Adagio - Allegro
- Allegro con grazia
- Allegro molto vivace
- Finale: adagio lamentoso
I recently heard a performance of this symphony live. The concert
was given by the Cambridge Philharmonic orchestra on 18 February 1999.
The Pathétique was the third piece in a programme
that started with Shostakovich's Festive
Overture and was followed by Dvorák's
Still to be completed...
