A mere 20 years separate the composition of these two symphonies, yet their musical journeys take us in completely opposite directions. After a Beethoven-like struggle with Fate, Tchaikovsky’s symphony banishes all doubts with a thrilling, no-holds-barred coda that sets the heart racing. Ives startles us with glimpses of American folk and band music, concluding with what can only be likened to a short, tart Bronx cheer.
