The Symphony No. 6 in B minor, Op. 74, also known as the Pathétique Symphony, is Pyotr Ilyich Tchaikovsky's final completed symphony, written between February and the end of August 1893. The composer entitled the work "The Passionate Symphony", employing a Russian word, Патетическая (Pateticheskaya), meaning "passionate" or "emotional", that was then (mis-)translated into French as pathétique, meaning "solemn" or "emotive".
Premiered in 1893 in St. Petersburg with Tchaikovsky on the podium, the Sixth Symphony-later nicknamed Pathetique -was met with lukewarm reception before achieving success a few months later under the baton of Napravnik, barely 9 days before the death of the composer! Dedicated to his nephew, Tchaikovsky explained that he had put my whole soul into this work, and a tragic aura has remained associated with his ultimate symphonic composition. Discover this powerful work in an exceptional performance with maestro Karajan at the head of the Wiener Philharmoniker.
When Kirill Petrenko performed Tchaikovsky’s Sixth Symphony with the Berliner Philharmoniker in March 2017, one critic was stunned at how beautiful and breathtakingly exciting this music can be. This first audio release of the orchestra and its new chief conductor reflects the whole sonority and intensity of the interpretation – and offers a taste of an exciting new beginning. The orchestra’s musicians, audiences and journalists had high expectations of the concert.

Let us compare Gergiev's new recording of Tchaikovsky's Symphony No. 6 with the Vienna Philharmonic and his earlier recording of the same work with the Kirov Orchestra. The new recording is faster, as much as two minutes faster in the outer movements. But it's not better, no, it's not at all better.
