Alpesh Chauhan's début recording for Chandos - Tchaikovsky: Orchestral Works, Vol. 1 (CHSA 5300) - met with widespread critical acclaim and awards, including recording of the week for both The Times and Presto Music, and the BBC Music magazine's Orchestral Choice. This second volume - with the same forces - offers equally crisp and attentive playing from the BBC Scottish Symphony Orchestra, in another album that mixes well-known and less-heard Tchaikovsky. Three purely orchestral works form the core of the programme: Fatum (an early concert piece inspired by and 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 The Queen of Spades and excerpts from The Oprichnik (an early opera) and The Snow Maiden (incidental music for a play by Ostrovsky). The album was recorded in Glasgow City Halls in SURROUND-SOUND and is available as a hybrid SACD.
