Pittsburgh Symphony's Tchaikovsky & Dvořák a “Winner”

“Manfred Honeck has a winner here again with the Pittsburgh Symphony. It would be hard to praise this recording too much. Not only does he bring us the most exciting recorded Tchaikovsky “Pathetique” I know—plus arrange a fine unified suite from Dvořák’s Rusalka—he’s taken trouble to pen the best CD program notes I recall reading anywhere, complete with audio index points and examples of what he’s trying to accomplish. Honeck’s observations about Tchaikovsky’s life and music are well thought out, profound and so easily understood, they should be used in school. This is how to do a recording.” —Steven Kruger, Fanfare Magazine (Sept/Oct 2016 issue)
