Tchaikovsky: Symphony No. 5 in E minor Op. 64, Romeo and Juliet (Fantasy Overture)
Royal Philharmonic Orchestra
Daniele Gatti (conductor)
In his first recording for harmonia mundi, Maestro Gatti leads the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra in a visionary, romantic reading of two Tchaikovsky favourites: the fifth symphony and the Fantasy Overture Romeo and Juliet. Demonstrating a passionate respect for the composer's intentions, Gatti restores the rarely observed tempo markings and dynamic indications which Tchaikovsky detailed in his score.
