I'm currently playing 1812 Overture in my orchestra, and it sounds cool. Tchaikovsky is a composing genius, and this album is great! I highly recommend this, as it is a great addition to your classical collection.
This is one of the best compilations of his work that I've ever seen. Admittedly, his music can be hard to get through (anyone who has ever played all 16 minutes of the 1812 Overture will know exactly what I'm talking about), but it is still breath-taking nonetheless. My faves: Slavonic March, 1812 Overture, Nucracker Suite, Op. 71a: Russian Dance (Trepak)
