"... the symphony benefits from big, rock-solid sound ... this is one of the finer issues in Pletnev’s round of Tchaikovsky symphonies ... if you’ve been collecting Pletnev’s Tchaikovsky, you needn’t hesitate to get this latest release. It’s among the conductor’s best outings."
- Audiophile Audition

"... I can think of no better proponent than Pletnev. As with previous releases in this cycle, Pletnev has the Russian National Orchestra playing in top form ... he finds many felicities in the piece that delight the ear and give Tchaikovsky’s note-spinning a serenade-like gracefulness."
- Fanfare

While Tchaikovsky’s three final symphonies form an integral part of the modern concert repertoire, performances of his first three symphonies are still quite undeservedly rare. Conductor Mikhail Pletnev and the Russian National Orchestra shine some light on the Third Symphony on this album, part of their highly acclaimed Tchaikovsky series which proves that Pletnev has turned the RNO into an exceptional Tchaikovsky ensemble. The short piece Festival Coronation March completes the programme.

What is High-Resolution Audio?

High-resolution audio offers the highest-fidelity available, far surpassing the sound quality of traditional CDs. When you listen to music on a CD or tracks purchased via consumer services such as iTunes, you are hearing a low-resolution version of what was actually recorded and mastered in the studio. ProStudioMasters offers the original studio masters — exactly as the artist, producers and sound engineers mastered them — for download, directly to you.

What do I need for playback?

You may need additional software / hardware to take full advantage of the higher 24-bit high-res audio formats, but any music lover that has heard 16-bit vs 24-bit will tell you it's worth it!
