Tchaikovsky Symphony No. 5 in E minor (Op. 64)
Mendelssohn’s life-enhancing concerto, one of the most enchanting pieces of the Romantic era, creates the impression of having been conceived in one miraculous sweep (in fact it took him six years, on and off).Tchaikovsky opened his Symphony No. 5 with a motif the composer himself suggested signified his "complete resignation before fate".
