A fiery reading of Tchaikovsky’s final symphony from the end of the Soviet era



“Outright superb with a warm and close recording of the woodwind detailing of the first movement… blisteringly imaginative Tchaikovsky! Not once does Rozhdestvensky loosen his extraordinary grip. It’s even more effective than the Mravinsky-Leningrad.”
— Rob BarnettMusicweb International

Available for the first time ever in the West, Gennadi Rozhdestvensky conducts a brilliant performance of Tchaikovsky’s Symphony No. 6 (`Pathetique`). Appearing alongside is a joyful and thrilling Nutcracker Suite by the Moscow State Symphony and Pavel Kogan, whose Alto recordings of the Rachmaninov Symphonies have been hailed for their brilliance.
