Tchaikovsky: Complete Symphonies – Oslo Philharmonic, Mariss Jansons

‘Janson’s Tchaikovsky series, which includes Manfred, is self-recommending. The full romantic power of the music is consistently conveyed and, above all, the music-making is urgently spontaneous throughout, with the Oslo Philharmonic Orchestra always committed and fresh, helped by the richly atmospheric Chandos sound.’

Penguin Guide to Compact Discs

*** Rosette winner

This is the first time that Jansons’ Tchaikovsky series has been made available at bargain price: six discs for the price of three mid-price discs.

Six CDs in stylish high-quality packaging

This set collects what has constantly been referred to as key recordings of Tchaikovsky’s symphonies, and in an earlier version received a Rosette, and 3 stars, in The Penguin Complete Guide.

This is a limited edition set.

Seen by many as the definitive recorded version of Tchaikovsky’s symphonies, this best-selling set is now made available at bargain price for the first time. The recordings, packaged in a new, highly attractive box, have been completely remastered at 24-bit, which really adds to the listening experience, and are also available for the first time as a 6-CD set.

Including the Manfred Symphony and Capriccio Italien, the set remains a unique and generous collection.

"Janson’s Tchaikovsky series, which includes Manfred, is self-recommending. The full romantic power of the music is consistently conveyed and, above all, the music-making is urgently spontaneous throughout, ith the Oslo Philharmonic Orchestra always committed and fresh, helped by the richly atmospheric sound. If you want all six symphonies, this is a supreme bargain..."

The Penguin Guide - 1000 Greatest Classical Recordings 2011-12


These award-winning recordings first alerted record collectors to Mariss Janson’s remarkable abilities as an orchestral trainer. Virtually no-one outside Norway had ever heard of the Oslo Philharmonic until the mid-1980s, and yet here they are playing with a corporate virtuosity that still deeply impresses in every department, complemented to perfection by Chandos’ sound of thrilling depth and power.
Classic FM Magazine

These are performances to experience, marvellously played, vividly recorded… an investment for all seven symphonies that few listeners will regret.
Classic CD


The sonic quality of these compact discs is flawless… I would say that it’s safe to assume that this Chandos CD set is the definitive reading of these complete symphonies… I cannot recommend this compilation highly enough.
