在首演第六號交響曲《悲愴》九天後，柴可夫斯基死於聖彼得堡的家中。有些音樂學家（如Milton Cross 及David Ewen）認為，柴可夫斯基對於死亡早有覺悟，而第六號交響曲正是他寫給自己的安魂曲。柴可夫斯基個性內向害羞，他的感情世界一直是個謎，但他內心豐富的情感與說不出口的悲愁都在音樂裡表露無遺。
2007 年伊莉莎白音樂大賽冠軍得主。俄國鋼琴家安娜．維妮斯可雅，將與臺北市立交響樂團首席指揮吉博．瓦格共同演出柴可夫斯基最經典最膾炙人口的作品「降B 小調第一號鋼琴協奏曲，作品23」。華麗激動的音樂下帶點淡淡哀傷，是柴可夫斯基三首鋼琴協奏曲中最常被拿來演奏的作品，由於曝光率高，也是考驗演奏家實力的作品之一。
Nine days after leading the debut performance of his last completed symphony － Symphony No. 6, Pathétique － Tchaikovsky died at home in St. Petersburg. Some musicologists, such as Milton Cross and David Ewen, believe that the composer was aware of his imminent death and wrote this last symphony as his own requiem. Tchaikovsky was a shy, introverted character. His emotional world has always remained a mystery; however, the abundance of emotion in his heart and an unspeakable melancholy are evident in his music.
In 2007, Russian pianist Anna Vinnitskaya won first prize in the Queen Elisabeth Music Competition in Brussels. Under the direction of maestro Gilbert Varga, Vinnitskaya will be performing Tchaikovsky's most popular work with the TSO — Piano Concerto No. 1 in B-flat Minor. This impassioned work of unique resplendence carries a hint of sorrow and it is the most often played of the composer's three piano concertos. Precisely because it is played so often is one reason why the piece is perfect for exhibiting the true talent of any performer.
