5.0 out of 5 stars A revelation!, 9 Oct 2013

Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Tchaikovsky: Complete Orchestral Suites (Audio CD)
Having lived for nearly 20 years with the not-very-exciting Naxos recordings of the these suites, this set was a revelation. The fact that it takes 10 minutes off the timing of the first disc and nearly 5 minutes off on the second helps to give the maximum excitement without sacrificing the beauty of the lyrical movements. I always felt that this was enjoyable but second class Tchaikovsy. How wrong I was!
Marriner paces everything perfectly, the orchestra plays superbly, and the recording if first rate, so much better than the Naxos set on two discs. Having both discs in a slim double box is convenient, and the notes are excellent. And as for the price, I paid less than a fiver plus postage! Unbelievable!
