“Symphony No. 4” was written during the most tumultuous period of Tchaikovsky’s
life. It was during a period in his life when he was both recently married and
divorced. During this time period he also attempted suicide. Of all his works,
“Symphony No. 4”, is considered by many to have more emotional impact and
musical structure then any of his earlier pieces in part due to the personal
tragedies he endured while writing this symphonic masterpiece. This important
work is performed by the Boston Symphony Orchestra and conducted by Pierre
Monteux, the well-known Classical Conductor from Paris, known for the molding of
the Boston Symphony Orchestra in the mid-nineteen twenties into an Orchestra
who’s reputation was known worldwide as having the “French” sound and for being
the experts in French and Russian repertoire.
Hear this wild and extroverted symphony in the closest to true analogue sound
that can only be heard on the digital XRCD24 CD format. As with the entire XRCD
series, no proprietary chips, processors, or special compact disc players are
