Saint Valentines' day, Tchaikovsky's Pathetique, me and You!

When you are Sad, then you could have the feeling on what Tchaikovsky was thinking when he composed this great Music in 1893, The “Pathetique”.
The Symphony No. 6 in B minor, Op. 74, Pathétique is Pyotr Ilyich Tchaikovsky's final completed symphony, written between February and the end of August 1893. The composer led the first performance in Saint Petersburg on October 28 of that year, nine days before his death.

The third movement as my favourite portion revolves around two themes, a nervous, jittery motif in the woodwinds and a majestic march originating in the woodwinds. As a march, it is very un-military. Its harmonic structure is established on the tonic and subdominant rather than the more common tonic and dominant. The jittery theme completely gives way to the march theme at the short development. Eventually, the orchestra launches into a full, triumphant chorus of the brass theme at the movement's end, often leading the audience to believe that the symphony is over. I had been to listening to this masterpiece that some of the people clapped their hands at City hall Hong Kong. And the rest of the sheep followed! What a Shame…

Well, Only if you have suffer, bankruptcy, devoices, of your girl is running away, or your girl does not allow you to enter the room when you are horny. Then you know how emotional and arousing pity this music could be…

I am listening to this DMS, Delos, Digital Master Series, recorded in USA and Printed in Japan using the latest digital technology in 1985, The Claims frequency response from 0 to 21 Khz, Dynamic Range better than 90 db, S/N ratio better than 90 db…

They used Schoeps 221B omnidirectional microphones.

When listened to this LP, I did not feel that is Digital, but a sort of Mild Tube like warmth of Analogue Music… Worth your Turn Table,Tone Arm and the Precious Cartridge to work on this 40 minutes of Enjoyment! And better Cry out Loud for your beloved! “Darling, come Back Home!
Tomorrow will be St, Valentine’s day, may all the beloved should stay together…. And Enjoy Dinner under the Candle Light….!!! Listen to the heartily words from your lover!!
