Notes and Editorial Reviews
A New York Times 25 Best Classical Track Selection for 2019

Although this boxed set has its share of longueurs — it’s bound to, with more than eight hours of Tchaikovsky interpreted, for the most part, with an extremely level head — you can skip to the First Piano Concerto, presented here in its original form: a revelation of delicacy, and a war horse as you’ve never heard it.
