The Russian composer Pyotr Ilyich Tchaikovsky wrote his sixth symphony in 1893. This is the last complete symphony Tchaikovsky wrote. The symphony is also known as 'Pathetique' and it's his most well-known symphony these days. Tchaikovsky himself led the premiere in 1893, nine days before he died. The second performance took place 21 days later as a memorial to this great Russian composer. It included some minor corrections that Tchaikovsky had made after the premiere, and was thus the first performance of the work in the exact form in which it is known today. This concert features the Mariinsky Orchestra and conductor Valery Gergiev at the Salle Pleyel in Paris. In 2010, all six Tchaikovsky symphonies were recorded by this Russian combination.
