Gergiev conducts Pyotr Ilyich Tchaikovsky's final completed symphony / monument. Symphony No. 6 in B minor, Op. 74, (Pathétique) IV. Finale: Adagio lamentoso – Andante.
Waited ages to post this.
It is curious, but till that moment I had never realized what it means to destroy a healthy, conscious man…I saw the mystery, the unspeakable wrongness, of cutting a life short when it is in full tide. This man was not dying, he was alive just as we were alive. All the organs of his body were working - bowels digesting food, skin renewing itself, nails growing, tissues forming - all toiling away in solemn foolery. His nails would still be growing when he stood on the drop, when he was falling through the air with a tenth of a second to live. His eyes saw the yellow gravel and the grey walls, and his brain still remembered, foresaw, reasoned - reasoned even about puddles. He and we were a party of men walking together, seeing, hearing, feeling, understanding the same world; and in two minutes, with a sudden snap, one of us would be gone - one mind less, one world less.
