Notes and Editorial Reviews

This is a hybrid Super Audio CD playable on both regular and Super Audio CD players.

"The music on this SACD is a mixture of very familiar and quite rare Tchaikovsky pieces, thrillingly played by an orchestra and conductor with this music in their blood, and recorded in what is surely some of the most vivid and immediate sound available on SACD." - SA-CD.net

"Here comes the superbly trained chorus of the Mariinsky Theatre to advantage, the young baritone Alexei Markov contributes a haunting monologue and the mezzo-soprano Lyubov Sokolova two deeply felt arias." - FonoForum, [02/2010] (Review of the Cantata "Moscow")
