Long a concert rarity, this most convoluted of Tchaikovsky symphonies contains the gamut of musical parameters: passion, precision, drama, lyric beauty and an organ apotheosis in the finale that sets one’s pulse racing from the very first note. In this concluding release to his complete recording of Tchaikovsky’s symphonies,

Mikhail Pletnev is in his element, with a Romantic poet (Byron), a strife torn hero (Manfred), not to mention one of the greatest of all composers. Under Pletnev’s baton, the Russian National Orchestra responds with an astounding degree of esprit de corps, vitality, rigor and soul in this psychological portrait of a tortured fate transformed into a triumph of sound and poetry.

 

                      Performance *****           Recording *****

"...both conductor and orchestra are on particularly fine form in Manfred, delivering an insightful and compelling reading that takes place among the finest available recordings of this work... Pentatone’s SACD recording captures all the intricate detail of Tchaikovsky’s fabulous orchestration to spectacular effect..."

 
Erik Levi - BBC Music magazine - October 2014

                                 ***** (Exceptional Album)

                     Music **** (Very Good)          Sound ***** (Excellent)

Thomas Schulz - Fono Forum (Germany) - July 2014


"...This release is one of the finest of Pletnev’s Tchaikovsky survey and for many will be a clear first choice especially if sound quality is a major consideration. Enthusiastically recommended!"
