The Gürzenich-Orchester Köln continue their Tchaikovsky series with the lesser-known Symphony No.1 together with excerpts from the Snow Maiden. This symphony has a wealth of melodies but has been overshadowed by Symphonies Nos. 4, 5 and 6.

II. Adagio cantabile ma non tanto (Land of Desolation, Land of Mists)

III. Scherzo: Allegro scherzando giocoso

IV. Finale: Andante lugubre - Allegro maestoso

Pyotr Il'yich Tchaikovsky: The Snow Maiden, Op. 12

Prologue: Introduction

Act II: Melodrama

Act III: Dance of the Tumblers

BBC Music Magazine

November 2012

****

“Aided by a superb recording, Kitajenko secures outstandingly responsive playing. Highlights are the atmospheric slow movement and some nimble string passagework in the Finale.”

Gramophone Magazine

Awards Issue 2012

“Altogether this is a splendidly played coupling with wonderfully idiomatic understanding by the Gurzenich Orchestra, so sensitively conducted by Dmitri Kitaenko; his account of the symphony's Adagio is very moving, as is the central movement of the Snow Maiden music. A disc not to be missed on any account.”
