Little Russian Symphony by Tchaikovsky
This excellent recording of Tchaikovsky's Second Symphony was my first download of music from the ClassicsOnline site. The sound quality is excellent and the conductor Mariss Jansons leads the Oslo Philharmonic with obvious gusto! My download plays perfectly on my Bose system at home and on the CD player of my wife's new car!
Although this Symphony is perhaps not as well known as the composer's other major symphonic works, it is characterized by many beautiful melodic folk themes and all four movements show gorgeous orchestration.
The accompanying recording of Capriccio Italien is also very enjoyable. It is not only a very familiar piece but in this recording, it is beautifully played.
I thoroughly recommend this album to all ClassicsOnline users and especially to those who enjoy the many other masterpieces of this great Russian composer.more....
