Mozart's Attic - Sunday, January 19th at 6:00 pm

Pyotr Ilyich Tchaikovsky

Tchaikovsky's Fourth Symphony wasn't an immediate success. The critics largely panned it, like they did the First Piano and Violin Concerti. But time was Tchaikovsky's friend, and these three works began winning an audience; they have become some of the most frequently performed works of the Russian Romantic period to this day.

We'll hear the Fourth Symphony this Sunday, as we proceed with our look at the six numbered Tchaikovsky symphonies.
