    Before I start, just a quick word on repeats. I really don't give a hoot whether ensembles take repeats in this quartet (some people take exception in the last movement as they feel it then becomes unbalanced but it doesn't bother me one way or the other). With that elephant in the room...

    There are a number of recordings for the piano reduction of the three Tchaikovsky ballet suites. Ones I have listened to or sampled include (all of them are for four hands): Aurora Duo, Naxos: SL (arr. Langer), SB (arr. Rachmaninov), NC (arr. Esipoff) Argerich and Economou, DG: NC (arr...

  6. Ballet
    The 22nd to 82nd video in this playlist are supposed to cover the entire ballet, but I'm not sure that it's all there, as it's mostly cut when performed. Wikipedia lists all of the pieces here: Can anybody tell me if anything...

    I am new to this site, so sorry if this is not quite the right way to post this inquiry, but i was wondering about opinions on the best available (or otherwise known) production of Onegin, say post 1985.

    I have always avoided Tchaikovsky's Manfred Symphony because I heard mostly negative opinions about this symphony. Also it seems to be performed very rarely. Now I heard it and liked it very much! Of course, it is not that substantial and brilliant like his Sixth but still very enjoyable. What...

    Not sure if this should be posted in the Theory forum or not, but I figured more might see it here. Anyways, I was just curious if anyone has read either one of these, and what their take on it was. (Not it's Rimsky-Korsakov's "Practical Manual of Harmony," not "Principles of Orchestration")...

    I wanted to share with you Tchaikovsky's Symphony Number 6, called "Pathetique" (which translates from Russian as "passionate"). It was Tchaikovsky's last symphony. He conducted its premier just nine days before his death in 1893. He was 53 years old. To understand this symphony, we have to...
  11. Classical Music Discussion
    Am I the only one who has noticed some major similarities between these two at times? When I first got into Classical Music Tchaikovsky was my favorite composer for the longest time, and I tried so hard and long to find someone with a similar writing style that I eventually just gave up. I then...

    Tchaikovsky Sym. #7 (Semyon Bogatyrev): Any of you listen to this very much? I became used to the Ormandy/Philadelphia record when it first came out and still prefer it. I spin it a few times per year.
  15. Classical Music Discussion
    Two similarly themed composition from two great composers (Beethoven and Tchaikovsky, of course). Both tell the story of a battle, both have cannons and national anthems and a lenght around 15 minutes. Which one do you think is the better? For reference here is a recording of the Beethoven...

    Sorry if this is old news. It isn't perfect Tchaikovsky, but it is pretty darn amazing.
  17. Classical Music Discussion
    Ever have one of those big-name composers whom you've heard of, and heard a piece or two of, yet you never really explored their music? As ashamed to admit it as I am, for me that composer was Elgar. It wasn't until recently that I really dove in to his musical output, and after hearing several...

    imo Bellini: Beatrice di Tenda Verdi: Attila Rossini: Maometto Secondo Tchaikovsky: The Maid of Orleans clips welcome =)
  19. Solved Cases (archive)
    I have heard this cue in a film, and while much of it had in fact library (not classical) music; there were indeed brief fragments of classical works scattered througout. This particular fragment I recall playing somewhere else, and once I was told it sounded like a Tchaikovsky symphony, but no...
