CD Reviews

Simply excellent

(5 out of 5 stars)

"This six CD box set contains:
-The six symphonies
-Capriccio Italien
-Francesca da Rimini
-Romeo and Juliet
-Ouverture 1812

These recordings are fantastic ! The tempo is perfect, the pieces are perfectly played and the sound quality is really great ! We distinctly hear each instrument and the playing is very subtle ! Tchaikovsky is my favourite composer, therefore I am very severe when evaluating Tchaikovsky recordings and I am absolutely surprised and extremely pleased of course to see how perfect ALL OF THE PIECES OF THESE CDs are !!!
The symphonies are wonderfully played. Sir Neville Marriner is such a good conductor.
The Capriccio Italien has a lively rhythm.
I particularly love Francesca da Rimini and Romeo and Juliet and I can say they are far better played here than in other recordings (usually they're played too fast or too slow) and full of emotions, as it should be played. I tremble each time I listen to Francesca da Rimini.
The Ouverture 1812 is also very well played.

It is really a praiseworthy quality box set. All I have to say is BRAVO !!!
