The Swedish Chamber Orchestra and Thomas Dausgaard here perform two works by Pyotr Tchaikovsky as part of their “Opening Doors” series.

The series presents large-scale Romantic symphonic works with the clarity that a chamber orchestra can offer. Previous recordings include a full cycle of Schumann’s symphonies, Dvořák’s ‘New World Symphony’, and Symphony No. 2 by Bruckner.

The works here come from either end of Tchaikovsky’s career and are linked by the tragedy apparent in their endings.

Pyotr Il'yich Tchaikovsky: Symphony No. 6 in B minor, Op. 74, "Pathetique"

I. Adagio - Allegro non troppo

II. Allegro con gracia

III. Allegro molto vivace

IV. Finale: Adagio lamentoso

Pyotr Il'yich Tchaikovsky: Romeo and Juliet Fantasy Overture (3rd version, 1880)

Romeo and Juliet Fantasy Overture (3rd version, 1880)

Gramophone Magazine

January 2013

“The virtues are self-evident: Dausgaard elicits some impressively accomplished and consistently bright-eyed playing, textures are sifted with watchful care...and his readings are abundantly musical, free of eccentricity and eschew any spurious expressive posturing...their innate good taste and sense of classical equilibrium never allowing the listener to forget for one moment Tchaikovsky's veneration of Mozart.”

The Guardian

1st November 2012

***

“Tchaikovsky's textures are never problematically dense, but some of Dausgaard's tempi, especially his breakneck speed for the third-movement march, undermine the extra crispness the smaller-than-usual string section might have achieved.”
