Decca Classics releases a seven-volume edition from the Czech Philharmonic and newly-appointed Chief Conductor and Music Director Semyon Bychkov, The Tchaikovsky Project. Since the project’s inception in 2013, the orchestra and conductor have been delving into exhaustive exploration of Tchaikovsky’s music.

The first two recordings in the project, released on Decca in 2016 and 2017, have received wide critical acclaim and the year 2019 sees a series of Tchaikovsky residences in Tokyo, Vienna and Paris as well as at home in Prague. The new boxset features all of the composer’s symphonies, the three piano concertos with Kirill Gerstein, Romeo & Juliet, Serenade for Strings and Francesca da Rimini.

“This outstanding issue makes one look forward to the other five canonical symphonies with impatience.” ★★★★★
- The Sunday Times

“Semyon Bychkov and the world-class Czech Philharmonic give Tchaikovsky space and depth, and a richness of sound and ambience, without missing any of the excitement at moments of high drama.”
