I've listened to several renditions of Tchaikovsky's last composition and this is by far the best. None with as much depth, color and emotion. A great recording.
Excellent rendition. Best I've heard in recording so far.
A very good version, but there's a resonance in the last movement (sounds a little like a distant woodpecker) that gets louder and softer with the orchestra. Right channel only. Distracting. Get the Vienna performance of 2006.
