Notes and Editorial Reviews

The Sony Classical Masters series invariably offers cornerstones of the symphonic repertoire, and this new release includes two major complete cycles. One comes from the 19th century: the six symphonies of Tchaikovsky performed by the St. Petersburg Philharmonic – arguably the Tchaikovsky orchestra – under its music director Yuri Temirkanov. BBC Music Magazine praised the “remarkable vividness and warmth of the playing” in reviewing these recordings made in the “truthful acoustics of the wonderful 1830s’ hall in which the orchestra lives and breathes.” The Sony Classical Masters series invariably offers cornerstones of the symphonic repertoire, and this new release includes two major complete cycles.
