'Conductor warhorse, Valery Gergiev, is a profound mainstay in the Russian repertoire, and in this Mariinsky recording, we hear close to absolute purity.'
'The first movement in particular displays interpretative freedom of the kind unheard of since the heyday of those conductors.'
Valery Gergiev is widely recognised as the greatest modern interpreter of Tchaikovsky’s music and the Mariinsky holds a peerless reputation in the repertoire. Together they deliver definitive interpretations of Tchaikovsky’s Fourth and Fifth symphonies, recorded at Salle Pleyel in Paris during January 2010.
