This CD release has the potential of becoming a new reference recording: it features star conductor Mikhail Pletnev and the Russian National Orchestra with the complete Swan Lake by Peter Tchaikovsky – an absolute masterpiece of Russian orchestral music.

Swan Lake has come to be regarded as the very quintessence of Russian ballet, and its music benefits from an unchanged popularity worldwide and among a wide range of audiences.

The CD release marks the 20th anniversary of the Russian National Orchestra; since being founded by Mikhail Pletnev in 1990, the RNO has quickly reached a position at the top of Russian orchestras, as well as among the top ten of international orchestras (as listed by Gramophone).

This is Mikhail Pletnev’s and the RNO’s debut on Ondine.

Gramophone Magazine

June 2010

“[Pletnev's] devotion to Tchaikovsky is manifest in this performance. He knows the orchestra he created well, and how much he can ask of it; it is the orchestra as virtuoso that dominates.”

The Guardian

8th April 2010

****

“With his Russian National Orchestra on devastating form, Pletnev does it supremely well...he's particularly good at all those slightly sinister character dances in the third act and at whipping up a tragic frenzy...It's a superb achievement”
