Tchaikovsky Symphonies 3, 4 and 6

Royal Liverpool Philharmonic Orchestra
Vasily Petrenko

After universal praise from reviewers for the first volume of Symphonies 1, 2 and 5, the Tchaikovsky Symphony cycle continues with this eagerly-awaited release of Symphonies 3, 4 and 6.

CD 1
Symphony No. 4 in F minor, Op. 36
Symphony No. 3 in D major, 'Polish' Op. 29

CD 2
Symphony No.3 (continued)
Symphony No. 6 in B minor, 'Pathétique' Op. 74

‘The Royal Liverpool Philharmonic was born in the same year as Tchaikovsky so perhaps this is a romance that was written in the stars. The orchestra’s chief conductor, Vasily Petrenko — a Merseyside fixture since 2006, has wrapped up a Tchaikovsky cycle in rip-roaring, wonderfully seductive style.’ The Times *****

‘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.’ Presto Classical

' ...Petrenko exerts a grip that ratchets up the intensity to a maximum. Even the Symphonies No.4 and 6, so familiar on disc, seize the attention early on and refuse to let go.' Financial Times ****

‘Tchaikovsky at its finest - three of Tchaikovsky’s symphonies that show the band to be in the finest possible fettle.’ Mail on Sunday ***** Album of the Week
