Notes and Editorial Reviews

These versions of Tchaikovsky’s Symphonies Nos. 4-6, are regarded as definitive performances today. Limited, Numbered Vinyl in a box set, with audio based on the original tapes and including copies of the original recording journals. Box cover is adapted from the original release, each symphony is presented in a separate sleeve, reprinted from a 1960s pressing, with lacquers cut at Emil Berliner. But beautifully executed, utterly desirable and eminently collectible! These versions of Tchaikovsky’s Symphonies Nos. 4-6, are regarded as definitive performances today.
