"Love and charm are among the many qualities which distinguish this richly enjoyable set of the Tchaikovsky Symphonies," wrote Gramophone of the cycle that forms the heart of this collection. Mstislav Rostropovich, like Tchaikovsky, represents the very soul of Russian music. Stepping down from the conductor's podium, he returns to the cello for the Rococo Variations, the composer's tribute to the spirit of the 18th century.
