Conductor Ensemble Composer

Notes & Reviews:

This is something special. It 's possible that even many diehard fans of Tchaikovsky forget that during his lifetime he was renowned as an opera composer. All of these years later, of course, the most popular of his orchestral works are the Symphonies, Concertos and the famous ballets. Many "pops" orchestral programs will feature the Waltz or Polonaise from Eugen Onegin but we rarely get to hear any of the orchestral interludes or dances from those other operas based on works of Ostrovsky, Pushkin, Schiller and others. As part of the Evegny Svetlanov Anthology, the many recordings this famed conductor made of these pieces have been brought together in one collection. This set attests not only to Tchaikovsky 's wonderful music from operas (even now most complete performances of these works are found on historical reissues from the 1940s and 1950s, so much of this music might be new to you) but to the wonderfully theatrical performances of the late Svetlanov and the orchestra he led from 1965 to 2000.
