For those who enjoy the fireworks of the 1812 Overture (a piece that Tchaikovsky loathed and only wrote it as a commission for the Tsar) this performance is about as loud and raucous as they come. These pieces (I would have liked March Slav instead of the Remini) should be in every basic classical library. I can't think of a better place to start than right here.
Tchaikovsky referred to the piece as his "Serbo-Russian March" while writing it. It was premiered in Moscow on November 17 1876, conducted by Nikolai Rubinstein. The march is highly programmatic in its form and organization. The first section describes the oppression of the Serbs by the Turks. Sir Adrian Boult conducting the London Philharmonic Orchestra. Antal Doráti conducting the Detroit Symphony Orchestra. Charles Dutoit conducting the Montreal Symphony Orchestra. Herbert von Karajan conducting the Berlin Philharmonic. Bernard Haitink conducting the Royal Concertgebouw Orchestra of Amsterdam. Fritz Reiner conducting the Chicago Symphony Orchestra. Leonard Slatkin conducting the Saint Louis Symphony Orchestra. Leopold Stokowski conducting the London Symphony Orchestra.
Taped between January 1957 and October 1970, these Columbia recordings of Tchaikovsky's symphonic blockbusters by Leonard Bernstein and the New York Philharmonic are consistently terrible. Like the conductor, the New York Philharmonic was a consistently terrible Tchaikovsky orchestra, the composer's gaudy colors and melodies matched by the orchestra's rude colors and crude playing. And like the conductor and the orchestra, the Columbia recordings made in the abysmal Avery Fischer Hall and the awful St. George Hotel in Brooklyn were consistently terrible, sounding clangorous, harsh, and far too close.
