Galactic Gergiev's Gargantuan Tchaikovsky Symphonies,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Tchaikovsky: Symphonies Nos.4-6 (Audio CD)
This is without doubt the most STUPENDOUS version of Tchaikovsky's Symphonies 4,5,and 6 ever produced. The Finale of the 5th Symphony is the Best I have ever heard.The Conductor Valery Gergiev and Orchestra - the BRILLIANT Vienna Philharmonic, transport the listener into what I can only describe as Heaven on Earth.Listen and prepare for the tingling in the spine,the lump in the throat,and yes, the tears!When the listener has come back down to earth, there is only one thing to do - play it all again,and turn the volume up another notch or two.The Timpani are simply unforgettable,as is the Magnificent Brass. Buy and Rejoice!!
