This is a recording from Appian Publications & Recordings Ltd (to quote the full title)—the label invariably more familiarly known simply as "APR".

Since its foundation in 1986, APR has won an enviable reputation as a quality label devoted predominantly—though not exclusively—to historic piano recordings. In particular APR has won countless laurels for the high standard of its 78rpm restoration work—"Transfers of genius" to quote one critic—as well as the detail and content of its booklets.


'Nikolayeva spills scree-loads of notes with the best just as Tchaikovsky prescribed. The orchestra proves itself superior and a match for Ormandy’s Philadelphia in weight and unanimity. Their sound is remarkable also for the passion with which its playing is irradiated' (MusicWeb International)» More

'[Tatiana Nikolayeva] plays with the muscularity and power of three pianists without ever seeming to force her instrument; conversely, she is able to deliver moments of the utmost tenderness and sensitivity. Her enthusiasm for the score is infectious and quite successful at drawing in and maintaining the listener's attention' (AllMusic, USA)» More
