A collection of all of Tchaikovsky’s symphonies and ballet suites from the rich archives of Deutsche Grammophon. All the performances have been justifiably critically appraised. This volume includes Tchaikovsky’s final symphony, the ‘Pathétique’ and the tone poem Romeo and Juliet – both recorded by Claudio Abbado in the early 1970s – as well as a rare recording of the Manfred Symphony by Yuri Ahronovitch and Ferdinand Leitner’s bright 1959 account of the Capriccio italien.
