This volume of the "Naxos Musical Journey" returns to Russia and the music and world of Tchaikovsky. "Violin Concerto, Op. 35" and "Serenade for Strings" evoke memories of Tchaikovsky's homeland. From the Venice-like waterways of St. Petersburg to the famed Mariinsky (Kirov) Theater; from the remote splendor of the Yelagin Palace to sacred churches. Float along the River Neva for a stunning view of St. Petersburg's wondrous beauty; experience the intimacy of Tchaikovsky's own country home, preserved in time as he left it. These are sites and sounds as timeless as Tchaikovsky's music.
