 Tchaikovsky Adagios September 21, 2012 By Glenn B. (Bandon, OR) See All My Reviews "Tchaikovsky is one my favorite composers, so I was pleased to see this nice mixture of well known and smaller, less heard pieces. It has lived in the CD player of my car for the last three weeks. I enjoyed the quality of the performances and the selections, despite unevenness of the order and volume on the CDs. A great price, delivery was prompt, the two CDs in good shape, and the case broken, which has become a regular thing with crystal cases from ArchiveMusic. I just put the CDs in a new case. I would recommend "Tchaikovsky Adagios" to anyone who likes Tchaikovsky." Report Abuse
