Symphony No.4 in F minor Op.36
Pyotr Ilyich Tchaikovsky
Up 4. Highest position since 2009. 2nd of Tchaikovsky's 12 entries.
Tchaikovsky was on a roll. His Symphony No.1 had been a labour of love but at its premiere in 1868, it was warmly received. Symphony No. 2 followed five years later, and went down a storm. No.3, revealed to the world just a couple of years after that, received a universal thumbs-up at its first performance. Sadly for Tchaikovsky, the same could not be said about his Symphony No. 4, which received a muted reception when it was first performed!
