Notes & Reviews:

This new recording by The Philadelphia Orchestra and Christoph Eschenbach features a unique coupling of Tchaikovsky’s most popular orchestral pieces with two rarely recorded brass quintets by Victor Ewald, performed by the Orchestra’s outstanding brass principals. Both Peter Tchaikovsky and Victor Ewald were active composers in St. Petersburg's musical life during the same time and familiar with each other’s work. Esteemed by all lovers of brass music, Ewald’s Quintets are imbued with romantic Russian national feeling. This is the concluding ninth CD to be released under the "formidable Ondine-Eschenbach-Philadelphia partnership" (Gramophone), which since 2005 has produced discs that have been honored with accolades including BBC Music Magazine’s Disc of the Month, Gramophone’s "Editor’s Choice," The New York Times’ "Top Ten Recordings of the Year," and the German Record Critics’ Award, among others.

Gramophone Magazine
In Francesca da Rimini Eschenbach and his meticulously prepared band ride the Allegro vivo whirlwind with prodigious skill...[the Ewald quintets] are delectably tuneful and idiomatically crafted morsels, delivered with wonderful poise and very real affection by the Philadelphia's top-flight principals.

BBC Music Magazine
Christoph Eschenbach's approach to the Serenade is big and sumptuous...he [hits] the heights of the love theme [in Romeo & Juliet] with aristocractic aplomb and he always reminds you what a fabulously organised symphonic movement this is.
