Album information

The genre of the symphony played a major role throughout the creative life of Pyotr Ilyich Tchaikovsky. However, while Tchaikovsky’s three last symphonies have remained an integral part of the concert repertoire, performances of his first three symphonies are still quite rare.

This Tchaikovsky album is a continuation of the successful cycle that PentaTone began releasing in 2011. The Symphonies Nos. 4, 5 and 6 were all critically acclaimed, with Symphony No. 5 being selected as CD of the Month by BBC Music Magazine.

With this recording, the Russian National Orchestra and Mikhail Pletnev bring their Tchaikovsky interpretation to the next level, in a captivating musical experience.
