Bernstein conducts Tchaikovsky: Symphony No. 5
Boston Symphony Orchestra
Leonard Bernstein shared Tchaikovsky's passionate musicality, emotional intensity, and the gift for speaking directly to people's hearts. It is no wonder that the American musician felt particularly close to the composer and was one of the few conductors to have all of the Russian's symphonies in his repertoire. Relive Bernstein's passionate interpretation of Tchaikovsky's Fifth Symphony, whose form is characterised by the "fate theme" that appears in all four movements. Bernstein leads the Boston Symphony Orchestra on the 100th birthday of the conductor Sergei Koussevitzky, one of Bernstein's most important mentors, in this unforgettable performance.
