Read Review

Reviewer Edward Seckerson was moved by this release from one of the most exciting of young conductors (indeed, a previous Young Artist of the Year). “Petrenko’s Byronic petulance makes something really stirring of the self-loathing – Tchaikovsky’s as much as that of Byron’s antihero,” he wrote, adding, “The playing is lovely…Petrenko also keeps his head in the inferno of the finale, emphasising Tchaikovsky the classicist in the hard-working fugue.” The Petrenko era in Liverpool continues to yield rich dividends, he and his players clearly set on catching up with the Hallé as the UK orchestral success story of the day.
