Notes & Reviews:

Cementing the new relationship with Decca Classics, the Czech Philharmonic embarks on a cycle of Tchaikovsky's Symphonies under the baton of Semyon Bychkov. This first release showcases Tchaikovsky's last symphony, the Pathétique, paired with the Romeo & Juliet Overture Fantasy. Volume 1 marks the start of Decca's first Tchaikovsky cycle for nearly 40 years and future recordings - covering all Tchaikovsky's Symphonies, Piano Concertos, and other orchestral works - will follow.

Gramophone Magazine, October 2016
Bychkov's Russian roots make him mindful of Tchaikovsky's classicism, the emotion always 'contained' until it can be contained no more. The explosive development section is a controlled panic attack, classical in form, neurotic in nature... a very fine performance... and supplemented by a Romeo and Juliet of similar qualities - keen and articulate in strife, rich in romance. And it feels personal in a way that the warm, homespun playing of the Czech Philharmonic only accentuates.

classicalsource.com, October 2016
These are musically intense and illuminating readings superbly played and clearly and openly recorded...There is no doubt in my mind however that this beginning to Semyon Bychkov's Tchaikovsky Project series whets the appetite for further recordings.
