In addition to recording the six Tchaikovsky symphonies for Decca with the Vienna Philharmonic, Lorin Maazel also recorded the ‘Manfred’ – a recording often singled out as one of the best made of this symphony, as well as three of the tone poems based on literary legends, two Shakespearian (Hamlet, Romeo and Juliet), one Dante (the thrilling Francesca da Rimini). The latter was recorded as part of Decca’s ‘Phase 4’ series. This all-Tchaikovsky 2CD set is completed with two of the composer’s works for cello, the Rococo Variations and the Pezzo capriccioso, both receiving their first international release on CD.

BBC Music Magazine

April 2014


“Thrilling highly-charged accounts of some of Tchaikovsky's darkest music. Harrell's elegant Rococo Variations provides welcome light at the end of the tunnel.”

Classics Today

“Tchaikovsky’s Manfred Symphony has had precious few great recordings; luckily this is one of them … The finale has all the excitement, energy and crackerjack rhythmic thrust needed to make it really fly … a red-hot performance of Tchaikovsky’s Hamlet”

Gramophone Magazine

“Where excitement is concerned, there is no lack at all”
