I've heard many recording of both the "Pathetique" symphony and the "Romeo and Juliet" overture. On this recording the performances of both are first rate.

"Romeo and Juliet" is exquisitely played and expertly conducted. In fact to my own ears it is the first recording I have heard that adequately gives us the pathos, tenderness and excitement that is written into the score. Only listen to the two versions of the famous love theme to be persuaded. In the first version the tempo is perfect and the players wonderfully warm. In the second version the strings are rich, vibrant and judiciously mixed . In the so-called fight scenes the sound engineers have again done a superb job. Individual voices stand out and yet come together. I often compare just one part of any recording of this overture. Listen to the basses at 14'43". On most other recordings this bit is just yucky. Here, with Pletnev, it is perfection.

The "Pathetique" symphony, again, is gushing with lushness, another tribute to the talents of the sound engineers, nothwithstanding the virtuosity of the orchestra. In short, movement 1 is incredible, movement 2 superbly polished, movement 3 is breathtaking and movement 4 is heartbreaking.

Overall, a recording definitely worth having. Other recording will compare unfavourably.

I bought this primarily for the Romeo & Juliet overture, but for me it is marred at key moments (e.g. 14mins 30sec) by the brass being slightly out of tune (sharp horns definitely not in tune with the trumpets). This is disappointing because this is a key climax of the piece. I think the brass are recorded too close to a microphone and are occasionally rough-edged in timbre. The recording also lacks the reverb of a nice venue which makes the percussion jar. These technical criticisms aside (few recordings capture music without issues), the pace and interpretation of the piece is good and the dramatic moments are exciting and thrilling. It is the more romantic parts of the piece that need to be more perfect. 4 stars for musicality, 3 stars for technical recording and jarring brass on occasion.
