Notes & Reviews:

Onyx Classics is proud to present volume one of the label's eagerly awaited Tchaikovsky Symphony cycle with the Royal Liverpool Philharmonic Orchestra led by Vasily Petrenko. The series gets underway with Symphonies 1, 2 & 5. The set groups the composer's earliest notable work alongside one of his most joyful and one of his most popular. In 2015, the Royal Liverpool Philharmonic Orchestra celebrated its 175 anniversary. This new series is a testament to their enduring legacy.

Sunday Times, 12th June 2016
Petrenko's Tchaikovsky is authentically Russian in its bright, sharp-edged colours and rhythms...these are splendidly vivid performances.

The Guardian, 19th June 2016
Bursting with promise...Symphony No 5, full of light, shade, intensity, yearning accentuation, is a fine addition to a busy field. Petrenko and the RLPO continue to make an exciting partnership.

CD Review, 9th July 2016
The orchestra sounds amazing ... it has a wonderful warmth and reserve and depth; it's very fresh, I don't think it imitates any other recordings.

Gramophone Magazine, August 2016
It was worth the wait: this release of Symphonies Nos 1, 2 and 5 makes the best possible start to the projected cycle...If future releases match these impetuous, glorious performances, Petrenko's should be a cycle to be reckoned with.
