5.0 out of 5 stars A Joy to listen to, 31 Dec 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Tchaikovsky: Symphonies 1-6; Ballet music, etc (Audio CD)
Poor old Pyotr - what a confused and often unhappy lifestyle he must have led; and how fortunate we are for him to have channelled his emotions into such wonderful music. Whenever a box set is produced, there'll always be people who'll say, `Oh, why didn't they include ..?' and I suppose I'm one of them; but I'd be hard-pressed to do so on this occasion.

I'd really forgotten how good the first and especially the third symphonies are; and they're played to perfection with Riccardo Muti wielding his baton with precision and élan. The Manfred symphony was a joy to listen to, the 1812 Overture had me nervously ducking the cannon balls and the inclusion of Hamlet was a welcome addition.

Boxed and priced attractively, this set is a `must-have' for any Tchaikovsky devotee - as I am.
