Neeme Järvi is one of the most recorded conductors of our time – but this is the first time he records the Tchaikovsky symphonies! He does so with “his” orchestra of 22 years standing, the Gothenburg Symphony Orchestra: a combination whose many recordings on BIS has made huge audiences very happy indeed!
That Tchaikovsky and Järvi really is a ‘dream team’ concert audiences all over the world have been able to hear for themselves over the years. A student of the legendary Yevgeni Mravinsky – whose Tchaikovsky interpretations are still considered among the greatest – Järvi here gives us a vibrant Pathétique of unusual clarity, firmly rooted in the great Russian tradition, followed up by a Francesca da Rimini of great passion and fire.
We are of course extremely proud to be able to offer this unique opportunity to fans of Tchaikovsky, Järvi, the GSO – and to all other music lovers. That the recording is also one of the first multi-channel, surround sound releases of these much-loved works surely adds to the attraction! As will be the coming instalments in the Järvi-GSO Tchaikovsky cycle, this disc is a Hybrid Super Audio CD, meaning that it is playable on all CD and SACD players with an option of stereo or surround sound when played back on SACD equipment. Packed in an elegant slipcase, this is a release which certainly should make a difference to anyone’s CD collection!
