Fantastic, high powered version of the much recorded 1812. I would rate this in the top three of 1812 Overtures. The combination of augmented, large orchestra plus chorus and cannon make it explosive and the very reasonable price make it a steal. Get it while it lasts.

These Tchaikovsky pieces are well known and have been recorded by most orchestras across the globe. Ashkenazy projects them into your listening room with alarming brilliance.
The brass , drums and tympany are dazzling, while the strings in Romeo and Juliet are melancolic. The French Horn in this Romeo etc. is kept in the background,which is a pity , as it plays a pivotal role in the sadness of the drama. Apart from this, it is excellent.

Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
This is an interesting recording on several levels. While many people will be purchasing this version of the warhorse 1812 Overture because it is louder and uses every force available - Leningrad Military Orchestra, St. Petersburg Philharmonic Orchestra, St. Petersburg Chamber Choir etc - the real treasure here is Vladimir Ashkenazy conducting the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra in the Romeo and Juliet Fantasy Overture. It is lush, ultra-romantic, richly played and soaring. Though not as well known, both the Francesca da Rimini and the Capriccio Italien are placed on a higher level of interpretation than usual.

For Tchaikovsky lovers the Romeo and Juliet will completely satisfy. 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. Warn the neighbors....Grady Harp, August 13

I puchased this for my new speakers, and this recording was one of the most impressive I tried on them. The Romeo & Julie and Capriccio Italien are superb. What I think makes these performances and recording is that Ashkenazy truly strikes up the band (outstanding projection from the orchestra) and Decca recorded these performances during their reign as the label best known at the time for its spectacular sounding orchestra recordings.
