No one work encapsulates Tchaikovsky’s ultra-expressive, heart-on-sleeve creative outlook more than his tortured Sixth Symphony. A distraught Tchaikovsky, his disastrous private life torturing him in life and forcing him into death, filled this symphony with honesty and passion – and he committed suicide nine days after its first performance. Barely five decades later, inspired by the picturesque gardens of the Palace of Aranjuez outside Madrid, Joaquín Rodrigo wrote a piece that displays an altogether different sentiment: a colourful, strong yet tranquil evocation of elegance and beauty for guitar and orchestra whose contented, serene beauty is legendary.
