Daniel Barenboim conducts Tchaikovsky and a discovery

Piotr Tchaikovsky said about his Sixth Symphony, the Pathétique, that he was “repeatedly reduced to tears” while composing it. However, the emotional high pressure did not prevent him from creating a work full of complexity and ingenuity. To open this concert from June 2015, Daniel Barenboim conducts the symphonic hymnos Teufel Amor by Jörg Widmann.
