My review of Herbert von Karajan's set of the Tchaikovsky symphonies 1-3 at Amazon is as follows (and can also be read by clicking the headline of this blog):
I have tried the already classic Jansons versions of these three earlier and often neglected works, but it was only Karajan that convinced me that this is worthy symphonic music in its own right. The Slavonic hysteria may be underplayed, but Karajan gives these works symphonic cohesion and for all their excellence, Jansons and his Oslo Orchestra cannot quite match the sheer opulence of the Berlin Philharmonic. Quite superb.
