Two cycles of Tchaikovsky’s six symphonies were released this year: one on DVD under Philippe Jordan and, the other under Semyon Bychkov…recorded in Prague, The Tchaikovsky Project by Semyon Bychkov, now Chief Conductor and Music Director of the Czech Philharmonic, is even richer: added to the six symphonies, are the composer’s other symphonic works as well as the three piano concertos played by Russian-American pianist Kirill Gerstein. It is a boxset full of lyricism from a traditional musical ensemble that is coherent and well conducted.
