      Peter Iljitsch Tchaikowsky

      Symphony No. 1 in G Minor op. 13 (1866) “Winter Daydreams”
      Snow Maiden/Snowfl akes (excerpts)

      Gürzenich-Orchester Cologne
      Dmitri Kitayenko, conductor

      Tchaikovsky aff ectionately referred to his fi rst symphony as a “sin from his sweet youth”. Th e work was only fi rst heard in its entirety on February 3, 1868 under the direction of Nikolai Rubinstein. Praised by many reviewers for its wealth of melodies, the symphony unfairly stands in the shadows of the composer’s “three great” symphonies, namely, the Fourth, the Fifth and above all, the Sixth. It can be heard in this recording from November 2009, which also includes several pieces from Tchakowsky’s music to the play “Snowfl akes”.
