Tchaikovsky: Symphonies 4, 5 & 6 / Mravinsky, Leningrad PO
Composer: Peter Ilyich Tchaikovsky
Conductor: Eugen Mravinsky
Ensemble: Leningrad Philharmonic Orchestra
Uni/Deutsche Grammophon - #19745 / January 1, 1987

Click here for more information

These recordings by Evgeny Mravinsky and his Leningrad Philharmonic, taped in the autumn of 1960 while they were on tour in London, are among the absolute classics of the catalog. They are readings of hair-raising intensity--the finale of the Fourth is marked allegro con fuoco, and if you want to know what con fuoco means, all you have to do is listen for a moment. No one else has ever had the nerve, or the ability, to play the music this way. The treatment is very Russian: the extremes are more...Read more


Tschaikowsky: Ballett-Suiten / Rostropovich, Berlin PO
Composer: Peter Ilyich Tchaikovsky
Conductor: Mstislav Rostropovich
Performer: Eberhard Finke, Leon Spierer
Ensemble: Berlin Philharmonic Orchestra
Uni/Deutsche Grammophon - #449726 / March 11, 1997

Shortly after recording these three ballet suites in 1978, Mstislav Rostropovich likened conducting the Berlin Philharmonic to driving a locomotive. You get on, and you go where it takes you, he said--but in this case, the orchestra went where he wanted it to go. The playing is magnificent, but it is the characterization, the things Rostropovich gets the players to do that they wouldn't otherwise have done, that makes these accounts so memorable. As you listen, you are transported to a different...Read more


Tchaikovsky: Swan Lake / Lanchbery, Philharmonia Orchestra
Composer: Peter Ilyich Tchaikovsky
Conductor: John Lanchbery
Performer: Christopher Warren-Green
Ensemble: Philharmonia Orchestra
Emi Classics for Pleasure - #4727 / September 28, 1993

Click here for more information
John Lanchbery, a ballet conductor who worked frequently with Fonteyn and Nureyev, made this budget-priced recording in 1982, and it remains the best version on record. This is a delicate, flowing performance with fine orchestral playing and a spacious dynamic range that highlights even the sublest of touches. - The Rough Guide

Tchaikovsky: Symphony no 4, Romeo & Juliet / Barenboim
Composer: Peter Ilyich Tchaikovsky
Conductor: Daniel Barenboim
Ensemble: Chicago Symphony Orchestra
Wea/Atlantic/Teldec - #13698 / October 14, 1997

Click here for more information

Wow, can this orchestra play! If you want a crushing performance of this grandly Romantic symphony, with bellowing brass, thudding drums, and up close and personal digital sound, then this is just the ticket. The same holds true for Romeo and Juliet. If there are more physically exciting (but never vulgar) performances of this music around, then I sure haven't heard them. Hot! --David Hurwitz Read more


Tchaikovsky: 1812 Overture, etc; Beethoven / Dorati, et al
Composer: Peter Ilyich Tchaikovsky, Ludwig van Beethoven
Conductor: Antal Doráti
Performer: Deems Taylor
Ensemble: Minneapolis Symphony Orchestra, University of Minnesota Brass Band, et al.
Uni/Mercury Classics - #34360 / November 14, 1995

Click here for more information

It's hard to believe that this, the BEST EVER 1812 Overture was not only recorded in the 1950s, but it still sounds better than any other version. This last fact is a tribute to the remastering expertise of producer Wilma Cozart Fine, and a still greater tribute to her late husband, a recording genius, for leaving her with such fantastic quality original tapes to work with. If you want real cannon, the sound of a zillion bells, and a really sensational brass band, all perfectly blended together...Read more
