A Midsummer Night’s Dream: Overture, Op. 21
|Piotr Ilyich Tchaikovsky|
Symphony No. 6 in B minor, Op. 74 ‘Pathétique’
Recorded live in concert at the Royal Festival hall, these 2009 performances see the Philharmonia Orchestra capture the energy and profundity of Tchaikovsky’s 6th Symphony, led by Sir Charles Mackerras. Signum’s collection of live orchestral recordings with the Philharmonia continues to grow, this being the 14th release. Mackerras brought an extensive wealth and depth of understanding in his work as Principal Guest Conductor with the Philharmonia Orchestra – their disc of Mahler’s 4th symphony, released last year, was universally lauded by critics.
