TchaikovskyEdition

 

Tchaikovsky Edition, Brilliant Classics ★★★★

This is an extensive, though I do not believe, complete compendium of the existent compositions of Tchaikovsky. It consists of 60 CDs, and can be purchased at a very reasonable price from either Amazon.com or Arkivmusic.com. The recordings are quite variable, in that some are superb, while some recordings are generally of very marginal quality, and thus the four rather than five stars. There are repeats, including the 1st piano concerto, which is repeated five times, twice by the same pianist. Others, such as the 1812 overture, are performed without the vocal parts. The performances are for the most part of exceptionally high standard. For the price, this is a real bargain, and a good introduction to the music of Tchaikovsky.
