Acclaim for Tchaikovsky: Symphony No. 6

Gramophone List: The 100 Greatest Recordings
" Another jaw-dropping experience from Pletnev and his crack Russian National Orchestra: a really complete Pathétique."

Gramophone (December 2005)

"It takes a pretty special "Pathétique" to make a London critic sit up these days, but special is the word here... There's poetry, subtlety, mood-painting that is rich but never over-ripe and - yes - dignity. The revelations don't stop there. No one should be surprised to hear that a Russian orchestra can be soul-stirring, but the tonal sophistication and superbly judged balance are something new."

The Observer, London

"...an awe-inspiring experience. Should human beings be able to play like this?"

Gramophone

What They’re Saying

"I saw the greatest orchestra in the world play Friday night. If you think that's hyperbole, ask anyone who was in Yardley Hall that night. The Russian National Orchestra is the Rolls-Royce of orchestras, no ordinary ensemble."

The Kansas City Star
