Notes & Reviews:

Representing the first visit to the Proms by the St Petersburg Philharmonic Orchestra, this exhilarating and refreshing concert from 1992 sees the orchestra on top form under Yevgeny Mravinsky's esteemed successor, Yuri Temirkanov. Temirkanov is not averse to making changes to musical scores, and the Manfred Symphony featured on this DVD is subject to a convincing set of alterations, closing with a reprise of the first movement's dark coda, a compelling substitute for the customary happy ending. Temirkanov's profound love of Tchaikovsky's music is evident in this passionate interpretation from this critically acclaimed orchestra.

BBC Music Magazine
The Tchaikovsky is a beautiful and dramatic performance, though whether the DVD is worth buying rather depends on your feelings about the last two movements. Both have extensive cuts...and amendments...Overall, the orchestra makes a lovely sound and responds well to Temirkanov's expressive hands.
