At the end of 1878 he wrote: "I adore terribly this child of mine; it is one of only a few works with which I have not experienced disappointment". Ten years later, when referring to the symphony, he wrote "it turns out that not only have I not cooled towards it, as I have cooled towards the greater part of my compositions, but on the contrary, I am filled with warm and sympathetic feelings towards it. I don't know what the future may bring, but presently it seems to me that this is my best symphonic work" (http://www.tchaikovsky-research.net) Tchaikovsky's 4th Symphony was a great success when it premièred in February 1878. Pyotr Ilyich Tchaikovsky (Russian: Пётръ Ильичъ Чайковскій) May 7, 1840 -- November 6, 1893 was a Russian composer of the Romantic era. His wide-ranging output includes symphonies, operas, ballets, instrumental, chamber music and songs. He wrote some of the most popular concert and theatrical music in the classical repertoire, including the ballets Swan Lake, The Sleeping Beauty and The Nutcracker, the 1812 Overture, his First Piano Concerto, his last three numbered symphonies, and the opera Eugene Onegin. Famous recordings of Tchaikovsky Symphony 4 include: Herbert von Karajan - Berlin Philharmonic Orchestra, Leonard Bernstein - New York Philharmonic Orchestra, Michael Tilson Thomas (MTT) - San Francisco Symphony, Evgeny Svetlanov - USSR Symphony and Valery Gergiev, Vienna Philharmonic Orchestra.
