Notes & Reviews:

Praga's Reminiscences series features audiophile SACD remasterings of historic recordings. This release of works by Tchaikovsky pays tribute to Soviet conductor and composer Nikolai Semyonovich Golovanov. Golovanov held some of the highest musical positions in the USSR, including chief conductor of the Bolshoi Opera. Nicknamed the "Russian Furtwängler," his recorded output was substantial, and it featured full-blooded, powerful interpretations and extreme flexibility in tempo, phrasing and dynamics.
