A double love affair... Romeo & Juliet meet The Philadelphia Orchestra - The Philadelphia Orchestra’s performances of Tchaikovsky are legendary. This release, under Christoph Eschenbach, features works where The Philadelphia Orchestra is definitive in its interpretation and sound: Romeo and Juliet, String Serenade, and Francesca da Rimini. Am added bonus will be, for many, the discovery of two brass quintets by Victor Ewald, a Tchaikovsky contemporary, which here highlights the world-renowned brass members of The Philadelphia Orchestra.

Enthusiastic press and success followed on the release of the three final Tchaikovsky Symphonies, Nos. 4-6. Romeo and Juliet is Tchaikovsky’s first acknowledged masterpiece and today one of the most popular orchestral compositions ever written. The swirling orchestral mastery of Francesca da Rimini makes this a true showpiece for the Orchestra with its legendary "Philadelphia Sound". The Mozart-like String Serenade remains one of the most beloved of all works for string orchestra. Both Tchaikovsky and Ewald were active composers in St. Petersburg’s musical life during the same time and familiar with each other’s work. Esteemed by all lovers of brass music, Ewald’s Quintets are imbued with romantic Russian national feeling.

This is the ninth release under the "formidable Ondine-Eschenbach-Philadelphia partnership" (Gramophone), which since 2005 has produced recordings that have been honored with accolades including BBC Music Magazine’s Disc of the Month, Gramophone’s "Editor’s Choice," The New York Times’ "Top Ten Recordings of the Year," and the German Record Critics’ Award, among others.

"The Tchaikovsky performances are typical of Eschenbach at his best - emotionally intense and harmonically vibrant."

David Patrick Stearns - The Philadelphia Inquirer - 21 March 2010
 


"The two Victor Ewald quintets, delectably tuneful and idiomatically crafted morsels, (are) delivered with wonderful poise and very real affection by the Philadelphia’s top-flight section principals."

Andrew Achenbach - Gramophone - September 2010
 


"The Francesa da Rimini is wonderful, as Christoph Eschenbach - and the Philadelphia strings - really wring out the work’s drama and emotion, especially in the central section’s love music... The Philadelphia Orchestra Brass Quintet provides impressive beauty of tone and superlative musicianship. Ondine’s sound is excellent."

Victor Carr Jr - ClassicsToday.com - July 2010
 


"The brass divertimentos provide light relief after the most serious-minded Francesca I’ve ever heard, spaciously avoiding whirlwind overkill and dynamically alert in a studied byt affecting remembrance of happier times. (In Romeo and Juliet, Christoph Eschenbach) does hit the heights of the love theme with aristocratic aplomb and he always reminds you what a fabulously organised symphonic movement this is."

David Nice - BBC Music Magazine - October 2010
