Notes & Reviews:

Valery Gergiev is widely recognized as the greatest modern interpreter of Tchaikovsky's music and the Mariinsky Orchestra holds a peerless reputation in the repertoire. These acclaimed performances were filmed at Salle Pleyel in Paris during January 2010 and directed by Andy Sommer. The themes of fate and death pervade Tchaikovsky's final symphonies. The composition of the fourth symphony coincided with the breakdown of Tchaikovsky's marriage and a failed suicide attempt, and the sixth symphony premiered shortly before Tchaikovsky's death. Both the DVD and Blu-ray discs include a bonus interview of Maestro Gergiev directed by Tommy Pearson.
