The Tchaikovsky Album

The Tchaikovsky Album is a stunning collection of original recordings showcasing a number of Tchaikovsky’s greatest works, including Capriccio Italien, Romeo and Juliet, Francesca da Rimini and the 1812 Overture. Led by Chief Conductor Vasily Petrenko, the Royal Liverpool Philharmonic Orchestra perform these works to a spectacular standard.

The award-winning Royal Liverpool Philharmonic Orchestra is the UK’s oldest continuing professional symphony orchestra and Classic FM’s orchestra in North West England. Vasily Petrenko was appointed Principal Conductor of the Orchestra in September 2006 and in September 2009 became Chief Conductor. He joins a distinguished line of musicians who have led the Orchestra during its illustrious history.

Born in 1976, Petrenko started his music education at the St Petersburg Capella Boys Music School – the oldest music school in Russia. He then studied at the St Petersburg Conservatoire and participated in master classes with major classical music figures.

He has worked with many of the world’s most prestigious orchestras and has been awarded with numerous respected awards, including the Classic BRIT Awards Male Artist of the Year twice. The Tchaikovsky Album is released on May 11th 2015, just the week after the great composers 175th birthday. 2015 is also the 175th anniversary year of the founding of the Royal Liverpool Philharmonic.
