Notes & Reviews:

This is the first issue outside Russia of this remarkable Russian performance of a perennial favorite Tchaikovsky symphony. The coupling is a fascinating and neglected tribute to the Tsar's coronation, stirring stuff indeed. (Of Rozhdestvensky's previous 5th): "fine rasping brass... ith finely expressive detail that has no hint of mannerism. The waltz movement too is beautifully done, easy and carefree with clean textures that would show up even the slightest imprecisions of ensemble." -Gramophone. (Of this Moscow Cantata): "The final section is grand and the choral part blazes - soloists stand & deliver like true stalwarts" (MusicWeb)
