Notes & Reviews:

Tchaikovsky defined the symphony as being "the most lyrical of musical forms, not meant to express that for which there are no words, but which forces itself out of the soul, impatiently waiting to be uttered." With these words, the composer makes us aware of the special nature of his symphonies. Between February 2011 and March 2014, Pentatone released a highly acclaimed complete Tchaikovsky symphony cycle as well as the Marche Slave, the Festival Coronation March, Romeo and Juliet, Francesca da Rimini, Capriccio Italien and the Manfred Symphony. Performed by the world class Russian National Orchestra under the direction of Mikhail Pletnev, this majestic cycle, with the Fifth Symphony selected as CD of the Month by BBC Music Magazine, is now presented in a magnificent, opulently-sounding 7 SACD box set.
