If after hearing this superb 2008 Naxos disc some obstinate listeners insist on maintaining that the Manfred Symphony and the symphonic ballad The Voyevoda are lesser Tchaikovsky, it's not the fault of the performers. Vasily Petrenko is a talented conductor who knows how to get the best out of a score and an orchestra and his honest fondness for the repertoire cannot be doubted. The Royal Liverpool Philharmonic is likewise a skillful orchestra with a polished sound, a tight ensemble, and excellent soloists. But though Petrenko keeps things moving and the Liverpool musicians keep things taut, Manfred and Voyevoda refuse to become more than what they are: evocative but episodic scores filled with banal themes, garish orchestrations, and turgid rhythms. So while those stubborn listeners might concede few earlier recordings of Manfred and the Voyevoda have surpassed this one, they might also acknowledge Petrenko and the Royal Liverpool cannot redeem these two lugubrious works from their less than exalted status in Tchaikovsky's oeuvre. Naxos' digital sound is clear and colorful, if a bit distant. © TiVo

Audiophiles may desire this CD of Tchaikovsky's Symphony No. 4 and the Romeo and Juliet Overture for its splendid sound quality, but music lovers may curb their enthusiasm because there is little here to rave about. From the opening fanfares, it is immediately apparent that Channel Classics has employed state-of-the-art technology to best advantage, and the listener may settle in for a real sonic feast. However, the thrill of hearing the vivid timbres and extraordinary orchestral depth soon changes to a combination of dutiful listening and distracted boredom. The Budapest Festival Orchestra, directed by Ivan Fischer, delivers fairly standard performances of these familiar warhorses: not especially magnificent or terrible, but merely routine and competent renditions that neither enthrall nor offend. The restraint and predictability are perhaps due to the needs of the project; the emphasis on vivid sound quality seems to overshadow the music-making and inhibits the musicians from truly expressive playing. Yes, they can bring the roof down in spectacular climaxes -- the symphony's Finale makes that abundantly clear -- but the quieter music, say, in the Andantino and the Scherzo, is uncompelling and lacks inspiration. Romeo and Juliet is decent filler, but like the symphony, it only makes a splash in the loudest passages. Channel Classics released this recording in both CD and SACD formats, with exceptional reproduction. © TiVo
