The Music
Tchaikovsky's disastrous marriage to an infatuated admirer in July 1877 ended after just a few weeks, when he left for his brother-in-law's estate at Kamenka to escape from a wife to whom he had taken an invincible aversion. By the end of September, after attempted suicide, his marriage was at an end, and in October he left Russia to find relief in travel. In these extraordinary circumstances he nevertheless continued to work on die fourth of his six symphonies, completing it in early January 1878. Its first performance was given six weeks later in Moscow under die direction of Nikolay Rubinstein, attended by his new patroness Nadezhda von Meek, to whom it was dedicated, but in the composer's absence.
