Tchaikovsky: Vol 2
In this second volume, Alpesh Chauhan and the BBC Scottish Symphony Orchestra mix well-known and less-heard Tchaikovsky. Three purely orchestral works form the core of the programme: Fatum (an early concert piece inspired dedicated to Balakirev), Hamlet (the last of his Shakespeare-inspired pieces), and Capriccio italien. These are interspersed with works conceived for the theatre: the Introduction to his opera Queen of Spades and excerpts from Oprichnik and The Snow Maiden (incidental music for a play by Ostrovsky).
CHANDOS (2024)

For this, his début recording for Chandos, Alpesh Chauhan has chosen a collection of Tchaikovsky’s symphonic fantasias, alongside the Overture and Polonaise from the comic opera Cherevichki.
