Notes and Editorial Reviews

Even though Tchaikovsky believed that he had "written himself out“"after his Fourth Symphony, he composed his Fifth within a few weeks. The world premiere took place in 1888 under the composer‘s direction in St. Petersburg. The premiere was only moderately successful, but today the Fifth is one of Tchaikovsky‘s most popular works. On this recording made in 2010, it is complemented by the Slavonic March.
