I have listened to this symphony for perhaps 15 years, and over those years collected numerous recordings by all the notable orchestras and conductors. I must say, however, that none of them come anywhere close to matching the intensity and emotion in this recording. The first movement, especially, is almost painful to listen to, it is so gripping. This recording is not for the faint of heart, but if you want to hear the message Tchaikovsky was trying to give, this is the one recording of this piece you must have. All my other copies are gathering dust.

Though I like Tchaikovsky's symphonies, I've never cozied up to the Pathetique, at least until this recording. Perhaps it's seemed a bit too amorphous to me, with insufficient drama or contrast. Whatever my past quibbles have been, however, they pretty much dissolved after my first traversal of this rendition by the Munich Philharmonic under Sergiu Celibidache. Somehow it all flows naturally, there are delineations and emotional connections I hadn't sensed before. I've not really sampled many versions of this symphony, and so I'm not going to claim this is the best one out there. All I know is that it's the first that has really worked for me, and it has my sincere recommendation.

This is the best performance of the Tchaikovsky 6th that I have ever heard. Celibidache takes it a bit slower than other conductors, but the reward is hearing every note played correctly in a totally musical performance.

Does he outdo Leonard Bernstein? I think so, but you should get both performances and make up your own mind. I'm just here to tell you that this performance of the symphony is world-class, and maybe the best ever.

Sergiu Celibidache had no use for recordings, comparing them to going to bed with a photograph of Brigitte Bardot. Therefore, it is not surprising that his interpretations resemble those of no-one else. His tempi are VERY slow compared to those of, say, Mravinsky with the Leningrad orchestra, or the composer's own metronome markings. However, this interpretation is so powerful, so expressive, so personal, so musical, that there are passages I prefer to any other version. I recommend it highly.

Extraordinary music making. Celibidache's Tchaikovsky is on a plateau that is both `spiritual' and visceral. An almost impossible task for our more terrestrial conductors.
An absolute recommendation for the seasoned connoisseur of great music making.
