Notes & Reviews:

BR-Klassik presents the 2014 live recording from Munich's Philharmonie im Gasteig of the semi-staged performance of Tchaikovsky's late masterpiece "Pique Dame", or "The Queen of Spades". In its long history as a concert orchestra, the Bavarian Radio Symphony Orchestra has also devoted itself on numerous occasions to opera, under such eminent conductors as Rafael Kubelik and Leonard Bernstein. Chief conductor Mariss Jansons also maintains this tradition, for example with concert performances of Russian operas such as "Eugene Onegin". With great connoisseurship, Maestro Jansons assembled a group of singers for this performance, sung in the original Russian, who are all native speakers of the language, and very familiar with the work, including Misha Didyk as Herman, Tatiana Serjan as Lisa, and Alexey Markov as Prince Yeletsky.
