Tchaikovsky is said to have “put his entire soul” into his final symphony and the resulting somber and sighing music gives the listener a rare glimpse into the life of a complex man struggling with his identity. Santiago Cañón-Valencia has been praised as one of the most promising young cellists of his generation.
