Product Description


technical comment

  • Petrenko’s Tchaikovsky promises to be one of the most important orchestral releases of 2017. Universal praise from reviewers for the first volume of Symphonies 1, 2 and 5 bodes well for this eagerly-awaited release: Gramophone gave Volume One an Editor’s choice and it reigned as a top 10 UK Classical chart title for 7 weeks in 2016.

    “Petrenko’s Tchaikovsky is authentically Russian in its bright, sharp-edged colours and rhythms...these are splendidly vivid performances.” Sunday Times, 12th June 2016

    “bursting with promise...Symphony No 5, full of light, shade, intensity, yearning accentuation, is a fine addition to a busy field. Petrenko and the RLPO continue to make an exciting partnership.” The Guardian, 19th June 2016 ****

    “the orchestra sounds amazing … it has a wonderful warmth and reserve and depth; it’s very fresh, I don’t think it imitates any other recordings.” CD Review, 9th July 2016

    “It was worth the wait: this release of Symphonies Nos 1, 2 and 5 makes the best possible start to the projected cycle...If future releases match these impetuous, glorious performances, Petrenko’s should be a cycle to be reckoned with.” Gramophone Magazine, August 2016
