The magic of genuine Russian folk music“ – Tchaikovsky’s Second Symphony bears the epithet “Little Russian” not due to its slight scale (although it is indeed the shortest of his six symphonies), but because many of its themes originate in “Little Russia”. In the territory of the Tsar, this was the designation for a region known abroad as “Ruthenia”: the present-day Ukraine. The recording is complemented by the famous Rococo Variations with the young cellist Leonard Elschenbroich. 
 
OehmsClassics is proud to be able to continue this cycle – the recordings have received high praise and are already being considered reference recordings by some media representatives.

 "...The orchestra has a wonderful sound. The strings are especially rich and velvety ... This is not a conductor showing off his bright ideas but one who loves the music and wants to put it across as well as possible. The engineers take full advantage of SACD sound ... As you expet from SACD there is real depth to the sound; you can almost place the instrument in three dimensions, not just across the stage..."
