Notes & Reviews:

OehmsClassics presents the fifth installment of the highly praised Tchaikovsky cycle.

American Record Guide, May/June 2013
Mr. Kitaenko is one of the great living Russian conductors, and he has given us many a great recording of Russian music. The orchestra has a wonderful sound. The strings are especially rich and velvety - essential for Tchaikovsky. It has depth and warmth; it never seems cramped. The tempos are perfect - very close to Markevitch, whose No. 2 has long been the best you can buy.
