Like Hamlet Overture, originating at about the same time, Tchaikovsky’s 5th symphony, composed in 1888, focuses on the human existential question: To be or not to be – triumph over fate or triumph of fate? The per aspera ad astra dramaturgy underlying the symphony culminates in triumphant certainty.
