"This is a thrilling performance, which, like the Tchaikovsky Symphony, shows the indisputably high level of the Stuttgart Philharmonic." (Pizzicato LU) "The Stuttgart Philharmonic, founded in 1924, is in it's 6th year under the busy Israeli conductor Dan Ettinger. His regular work at almost all of the leading opera houses in the world makes his approach to the melodies of Tchaikovsky and Rachmaninoff just about perfect." (American Record Guide) The present album is a showstopping production of Tchaikovsky's Fourth Symphony paired with Rachmaninoff's Piano Concerto No. 2. The featured soloist in the concerto is Alexander Korsantia, one of the leading pianists of our time. He has been praised for "piano technique where difficulties simply do not exist." (Calgary Sun). His recordings of works by Beethoven, Prokofiev, Rachmaninoff, and Copland have won multiple awards.
