Tschaikovsky on overdrive,
This review is from: Tchaikovsky: Symphonies Nos.4, 5 & 6 "Pathetique" (DG The Originals) (Audio CD)
This is the best rendition I know of these symphonies. There is nothing modest or compromising in this interpretion, and I appreciate that in this case. Whithout beeing insensitive or sentimental Mravinskij imbues the music with heavy passion, which to me is very relevant and in accord with russian tradition - I can feel the spirit of old Russia, the age of Dostojevskij.
This is classical music for rock lovers (I am that too)
