Igor Markevitch’s Tchaikovsky performances have been among the best since the early ’60s. He turned the unruly London Symphony Orchestra into a first-rate Tchaikovsky ensemble, in which a finely disciplined approach to rhythm provides the perfect foundation for some highly expressive music-making.

Five decades after the completion of this legendary cycle, Decca proudly presents it at the highest-possible resolution, at 24-bit. Mastered from original analogue tapes, this hi-resolution digital set enables music to be heard as the studio engineers intended.
