". . he keeps it on a tight rein with maximum intensity and real sense of electricity crackling below the surface . . . the playing of the Russian National Orchestra is thrilling." --Gramophone

"Whatever other versions you may have this issue is a must. Pletnev has quite a special feeling for Tchaikovsky's music...and essential purchase." --Rosette Recording Penguin Stereo Guide


DG have gathered together all of the symphonic poems of Tchaikovsky that Mikhail Pletnev recorded with the RNO, previously offered only in single high-price CDs of the symphonies. All the major works are there, in some stunning performances.
