Interesting that no one has reviewed this disc while 20 out of 20 have recommended it. Many of Jarvi's other Tchaikovsky discs haven't fared as well, i.e., the 5th and 6th for example. I have opined that his 1st is a great recording, and I do hope that Pletnev can do it justice too.

I wonder what the CD Universe price is all about - given the prices from Amazon resellers?

Hmm, yes. Kind of crazy. I've seen that with other BIS recordings on occasion.

Thanks for giving this some "airplay". I just purchased it online.

Well, I did listen to it today. Perhaps in anticipation of what we might soon see from Pletnev and the Pentatone release. The 2nd isn't my favorite Tchaikovsky symphony, but it has some memorable melodies. I know the Pletnev will also have the original version of this symphony as well as the finished version.

This was one of the early BIS DSD recordings and all the better for that. There are relatively few 2's about as record companies have traditionally 'ignored' the
earlier ones. This is quite a favourite of mine.

Now that we have a whole raft of Russian conductors over here this piece is beginning to appear more often in concert halls. 'Little Russia' was of course approximately the Ukraine. At Bournemouth our 'Little Russian' conductor is in fact from Kiev in the Ukraine.

Are you sure about it being a DSD recording? It certainly does not appear to be based on website information.

I believe that only the first issued symphony, the Sixth, was a DSD recording. The Second was the fourth release in the series, the order being 6,1,5,2,4,3.

The booklet states "Meitner DSD interface; Pyramix Audio Workstation HD system".
The Meitner ADC only does DSD, and the Pyramix accepts it over its SDIF interface, and tracks the channels to a hard drive.

The same statement appears in the 4th, 5th, 6th, and 1st. I don't have the 3rd in this series

I am led by the booklet notes...

Neumann microphones, Crookwood & Millenia microphone amplifiers, Meitner DSD interface, Pyramix Workstation.... the same line-up as the other DSD recorded BIS discs
