CD information

While Tchaikovsky’s three last symphonies form an integral part of today’s concert repertoire, performances of his first three symphonies are still quite rare – a fate which none of them deserves.

The Russian National Orchestra's Tchaikovsky recordings have met with

critical praise since PENTATONE began releasing its widely acclaimed Tchaikovsky series. Conductor Mikhail Pletnev has turned the RNO into an exceptional Tchaikovsky ensemble, leading to such rave reviews as “the most exciting interpretations of the work you’re likely to hear” (Classical Candor).
