Radio-Sinfonieorchester Stuttgart, dir. Sir Neville Marriner.

Born in the small town of Votkinsk in 1840, Pyotr Ilyich Tchaikovsky achieved considerable renow during his own lifetime and is today hailed as one of the world's best-loved composers. Having initially studied law before enrolling at the St Petersburg Conservatory aged 22, he is best remembered for his symphonies, operas and ballets; ranking among his lesser-known creations, however, are the Four Orchestral Suites, to which this excellent two-disc set is dedicated.

The works are best viewed as an outlet for unrestricted musical fantasy, and indeed Tchaikovsky wrote to his patron Nadezhda von Meck that he valued the genre of the orchestral suite precisely because of the 'freedom ... it leaves the composer not to be bound by all sorts of traditions.' Composed in 1878--9 and 1883 respectively, Nos. 1 and 2 descend from the Baroque model, with Tchaikovsky paying homage to Bach and Telemann through the use of such idiomatic devices as the fugue -- as heard in the opening movement of the First Orchestral Suite. Whereas the Second is distinguished for its careful attention to texture (including the addition of four accordions), the Third (1884) is particularly lauded for its Theme and Variations finale -- a movement that was often performed on its own, such was its universal popularity.

Taking the form of a musical tribute to the composer Tchaikovsky most admired is the 'Mozartiana' Suite, written in 1887. A work that faithfully adapts some of the Austrian's best-known compositions, it presents a charming conclusion to an engaging cycle which -- brimming with all the hallmarks of the Russian's style -- is performed with authority under the expert baton of Sir Neville Marriner. All in all, this compilation is a must-buy for anyone wishing to delve deeper into the rich world of 19th-century orchestral music.

Recording made in 1987.
