The cello part for Tchaikovsky's Symphony No. 5 in E minor, Op. 64 has been edited by Jonathan Pegis, a cellist in the Chicago Symphony since 1986 and an active performer in the symphony's chamber music series. Pegis' bowings, fingerings and other editorial markings have been added throughout the score.

Tchaikovsky's Symphony No. 5 was composed between May and August of 1888. Like his Fourth Symphony, the Fifth is a cyclical symphony, with a recurring main theme. However, unlike the Fourth, the theme is heard in all four movements. Also, as in the Fourth, Tchaikovsky employs the theme of "Fate" in this symphony: the introduction represents a resignation to the inevitability of predestination. The Symphony is in four movements, and a typical performance runs about 46 minutes.
