To me this is the best possible way to present Tchaikovsky in just 2 discs. Usually I hate it when a piece, like his Piano Concerto #1, is broken up, as you hear two movements of it in different places on disc 1. But in this package, the selections meld seemlessly, almost as if they were written to be played in this sequence.
All his great music is here, including March Slave which of course is a great way to close CD 1, and the best from his ballets, for which he is most famous. Let's face it only a hard-core would sit and listen to an entire ballet. A few excellent slices from his symphonies and tone-poems as well, especially the exquisit Andante Cantabile.
If you are on a budget like me, or just want to start learning about this eccentric genius, get this package. The next albums to purchase might be Symphony #4 or a set of short suites from his ballets.
