Francesca da Rimini: Symphonic Fantasy after Dante, Op. 32, is a symphonic poem by Pyotr Ilyich Tchaikovsky. Following his visit to Bayreuth in the summer of 1876, he composed it in Moscow in fewer than three weeks. It is dedicated to his friend and former pupil Sergei Taneyev. It was first performed early in 1877 in Moscow in a concert by the Russian Musical Society, conducted by Nikolai Rubinstein.

This Jansons/London Philharmonic is a delight, with the right delicacy, grace and nuance from the LPO players. EMI's 1991 digital recording is warm and atmospheric. Very nice! However, my recent experience of hearing the Bonynge/National Philharmonic (UK, Decca, 1974) was very positive, and I would place Bonynge with Jansons, Dorati/LSO, and Tilson-Thomas (extended highlights, not the complete ballet). I should mention my purchase of this Jansons/LPO was not totally successful: the seller provided only Disc 1 of the 2 disc set, but it was very cheap, and what was sent is sheer delight.

32 by Peter Ilyich Tchaikovsky Conductor: Mstislav Rostropovich Orchestra/Ensemble: London Philharmonic Orchestra Period: Romantic Written: 1876; Russia Length: 25 Minutes 29 Secs. 3. Symphony no 2 in C minor, Op. 17 "Little Russian" by Peter Ilyich Tchaikovsky Conductor: Mstislav Rostropovich Orchestra/Ensemble: London Philharmonic Orchestra Period: Romantic Written: Russia Length: 34 Minutes 18 Secs. Notes: Composition written: Russia (1872). Composition revised: Russia (1880). Francesca da Rimini is not one of Tchaikovsky's best scores, and in lesser hands this work can fail to make much of an effect. In fact, I had not previously heard a recording that convinced me that Francesca da Rimini was more than third-rate Tchaikovsky. But from the first notes of Rostropovich's performance, all my doubts were swept aside.
