Tchaikovsky’s greatest music.

Tchaikovsky was one of the most beloved classical music composers. Many of his compositions — including his piano and violin concertos — are among the most popular of all classical compositions. But Tchaikovsky’s finest compositions were his three ballets, excerpts of which are presented on this CD. And one of the most outstanding conductors of Tchaikovsky’s ballets is Andre Previn. My first recommendation would be to get complete performances of all three of Tchaikovsky’s ballets. However, those who wish to sample the highlights of these masterpieces can do no better than this outstanding — and bargain priced — CD. This is some of the greatest music ever written by anyone, beautifully performed by a master of the genre.
