The next disc in Signum’s series of live orchestral recordings with the Philharmonia features the late Charles Mackerras conducting Tchaikovsky’s Symphony No 6 (Pathétique).
This was Tchaikovsky’s final completed symphony, premiered in St Petersberg under the baton of the composer in 1893, nine days before his death, dedicated to his nephew Vladimir ’Bob’ Davydov.

The Philharmonia Orchestra are widely recognised as the UK’s finest performers with an impressive recording legacy. The orchestra prides itself on collaborations with the finest musicians of our day.
 

"... Altogether exceptional, and strongest possible recommendation."

                      Editor’s Choice

"A valuable addition to the late Sir Charles Mackerras’s live legacy. There is an immediacy and incisive clarity to this 2009 live performance that make for tremendous drama at points of crisis ..."

Edward Seckerson - Gramophone magazine - October 2011


                IRR Outstanding

"This is a superb record - A magnificent and highly original live account of the ’Pathétique’ Symphony that can stand comparison with the most exacting competition....An Outstaning release."

Nigel Simeone - International Record Review - September 2011


"... You probably won’t hear a greater performance of the ’Pathétique’ Symphony: I certainly never have, the delivery in the Mendelssohn is in the same class." *****

Malcolm Hayes - Classic FM magazine - September 2011


Performance ****(Tchaikovsky)     ***** (Mendelssohn)      Recording ****

"...the Mendelssohn here is unmissable and the Tchaikovsky very fine indeed..."
