Does anyone know if there is a box set out there that contains all of
Tchaikovsky's music on CD? I ask because I can buy Beethoven, Mozart or
Bach sets (complete works), but have been unable to find a Tchaikovsky
I don't think there is one. Back in 1993, during the centennial of his
passing away, I couldn't find any. Of course, this was during the
pre-internet days so my search was limited to the extensive catalogues
published, that contained every single CD that was commercially available.
So I started purchasing his works here and there. I got me some
interesting stuff like the full VoxBox collection of his works, which
contains remarkable recordings and performances. I also got me the full
set of about eight CDs of his complete piano works, by Erato, played by
Viktoria Postnikova. I have a Pikovaya Dama with Mark Ermler conducting
the Bolshoi Theatre Orchestra, with Vladimir Atlantov, and after more than
15 years of looking, thanks to this great forum I was able to get the
Voyevoda from Russia, and I'd like to add, all things considered, the
recording is quite good. I downloaded "Charodeika" and "Orleanskaya Djiva"
from the iTunes store.
