…the orchestra play outstandingly for Robin Ticciati…This is not the big, epic symphonic Onegin of Russian tradition but a most attentive use of Tchaikovsky’s subtle dynamics and orchestral colours that doesn’t lack an ounce of excitement in the stirring symphonic codas to the dances and big choruses. The performance is also sung with strength, accuracy and detail by Stoyanova, Keenlyside and their confrères and sounds most natural. Jonathan Haswell’s filming goes beyond a watchful record of production detail, matching in its cutting the pace and bounce of the stage direction. Hugely recommended… © Gramophone Read complete review on Gramophone
