Notes & Reviews:

Recorded from the 1940s to the 1970s, Melodiya offers a wonderful gift for all admirers of Russian music culture: Tchaikovsky's symphonic works performed by the Leningrad Philharmonic Orchestra conducted by Evgeny Mravinsky. It is impossible to imagine the Orchestra - and perhaps the entire domestic music culture of the 20th century - without Mravinsky. For more than half a century, he was at the head of the orchestra and turned it into one of the best symphony collectives in Europe, receiving worldwide recognition. The repertoire of Mravinsky and his orchestra was broad and diverse, but the maestro's highest achievements were associated with music of Shostakovich and Tchaikovsky. Mravinsky performed and recorded Tchaikovsky's last three symphonies, concertos, ballet suites, and other symphonic works for dozens of times, much to the delight of listeners in Moscow, Leningrad, Vienna, Prague, Milan, London, and other European cities.
