Tchaikovsky – Symphony No. 4


Tchaikovsky did not like to provide literary “programs” for his symphonies, and even when he ad a “program” in mind, he refused to divulge it. Fate, with a capital F, was a favorite word with all the Romantics, and no one rolled it on his tongue more often and more sonorously than Peter Tchaikovsky.

Tchaikovsky developed his gift for tunefulness more freely and deployed it more liberally than he had previously. Paradoxically, this great asset also became his greatest enemy in terms of form. A melody is complete on its own terms. Because of this completeness, it stands apart from other themes meant not only to contrast, but more importantly to interact and build upon one another naturally.
