Tchaikovsky: Orchestral Suites

I am a devoted and, to be honest, almost obsessive fan of Tchaikovsky’s ballets, so I was horrified when I realised that I didn’t know his Orchestral Suites. This reissue from the Brilliant Classics label, full of the soaring tunes we know and love, is welcome indeed. Sir Neville Marriner is the conductor of the Radio-Sinfonieorchester Stuttgart and you can certainly feel his deft touch on these works.
