Notes & Reviews:

Tchaikovsky's role in the development of the Russian symphony genre cannot be overestimated. Using the richest arsenal of artistic means, with an outstanding mastery following and interpreting the laws of the genre that evolved in Western Europe, he contributed a genuine national substance and language to his symphonies.

Gennady Nikolayevich Rozhdestvensky (b. 1931) is one of the outstanding conductors of the 20th century, and also a pianist, composer, and researcher. Rozhdestvensky's repertoire is enormous; he has performed and recorded all of the symphonies by Haydn, Beethoven, Brahms, Tchaikovsky, and many others, and has conducted a multitude of the world's premieres both in Russia and overseas.
