Tchaikovsky: Symphony No. 4; Suite No. 4 "Mozartiana"

Editorial Reviews

All Music Guide - Blair Sanderson
Recorded live, these performances of Pyotr Il'yich Tchaikovsky's "Symphony No. 4 in F minor" and the "Suite No. 4, Mozartiana," are energetic and spontaneous, but the symphony is hampered throughout by lackluster audio, leaving only the suite as a viable selection.

It is possible that a patient listener might be able to find something worthwhile here, but the reproduction is far from ideal.

"Mozartiana" is much better, thanks to a clearer and fuller sound and focused microphone placement. However, most listeners will be disappointed by the mediocre recording of the "Fourth," and since there is no shortage of exceptional recordings of that work, this CD is most suitable for diehard fans of the conductor and the orchestra.
