About

A collection of all of Tchaikovsky’s symphonies and ballet suites from the rich archives of Deutsche Grammophon.

It is the first time the Symphony No.3 in D major, op.29 ‘Polish’ has appeared on CD, with the Wiener Symphoniker and conducted by Moshe Atzmon.

All the performances have been justifiably critically appraised. This volume includes the CD premiere of one of Tchaikovsky’s least-known symphonies – the Third. Moshe Atzmon’s airborne reading, stunningly recorded in 1973 in Vienna makes a long-overdue appearance. Rowicki’s accounts of the two popular ballet suites – Swan Lake and The Sleeping Beauty – are expansive and symphonic in their outlook.

‘by far the most refined recording of any current version of the Polish Symphony, warmly reverberant but well-enough defined in detail’ - (Symphony No.3) Gramophone, August 1974

‘[Abbado] secures clean, brilliant playing from the LSO in the first movement, finely controlled emotional climaxes in the slow movement … and a strong, urgent but unhysterical account of the finale.’ - (Symphony No.5) Gramophone, April 1972
