Notes and Editorial Reviews



Cementing the new relationship with Decca Classics, the Czech Philharmonic embarks on a cycle of Tchaikovsky’s Symphonies under the baton of Semyon Bychkov. This first release showcases Tchaikovsky’s last symphony, the Pathétique, paired with the Romeo & Juliet Overture Fantasy. Volume 1 marks the start of Decca’s first Tchaikovsky cycle for nearly 40 years, and future recordings – covering all Tchaikovsky’s Symphonies, Piano Concertos, and other orchestral works – will follow.
