Paul E. Robinson
Musical Toronto, May 2017

The soloists in this Tchaikovsky Cycle are unusually distinguished. Mikhail Pletnev is superb in Piano Concertos Nos 1 and 2, and in the rarely-played Concert Fantasia in G major Op. 56.

Viktor Tretyakov, soloist in the Violin Concerto, is often mentioned with the likes of Oistrakh and Kogan as being among the finest violinists ever produced in Russia, and deservedly so. No violinist played with a more beautiful sound and his technique was impeccable. In the Rococo Variations, Brazilian cellist Antonio Meneses is just as good, with near-perfect intonation and stylish phrasing.

For me, one of the unexpected highlights of the cycle was a series of excerpts from the opera Eugene Onegin with soprano Lydia Shernikh as Tatiana and baritone Alexander Nenadovsky as Onegin. I had never heard Shernikh before and have since looked in vain for her work on recordings. Her beautiful but commanding voice and electric presence are magnificent and elicit some thrilling playing from Fedoseyev and his orchestra. © 2017 Musical Toronto Read complete review
