 Faithful to the score conducting of Tchaikovski November 24, 2017 By Louis Galie (Leander, TX) See All My Reviews "A superb collection of undistorted (no needless rubati, no schmaltz)Tchaikovski with excellent orchestral playing and good sound engineering. A real value." Report Abuse
 very good November 2, 2017 By Emmanuel J. C. (Albuquerque, NM) See All My Reviews "For me Mr Ormandy is the best of the best '" Report Abuse
 Wonderful Compendium October 31, 2017 By Marvin G. (Bronx, NY) See All My Reviews "Eugene Ormandy has always satisfied my tastes with his mastery of both the sensitive and powerful in the performances he conducts. With Tchaikovsky, he has the perfect showcase for this talent. And this wide-ranging collections of works affords him the material to tailor. Some of the soloists are not the best available, but this is one of the best overall collections and at a price not to be missed." Report Abuse
