Hailed by the German press as \the definitive video production" of Tchaikovsky's music, this exceptional concert series, recorded live from the 'Alte Oper Frankfurt', features the leading Russian conductor Vladimir Fedoseyev and the Moscow Radio Symphony Orchestra. In springtime 1888, Tchaikovsky wrote the Fifth Symphony within a few weeks at his cottage at Frolovskoe. This symphony was first performed under Tchaikovsky's own baton, in St. Petersburg on November 6, 1888. Like his first piano concerto, the second is dedicated to Nikolai Rubinstein, who died unexpectedly in March 1881 in Paris during a concert tour. Once again Mikhail Pletnev is our outstanding soloist. This Concert Overture was Tchaikovsky's first work to be performed in Moscow. The 'F Major Overture' was composed back in 1865 in St. Petersburg and was premi?¿red by the local school orchestra under Tchaikovsky's own direction."
