Notes and Editorial Reviews

“Here (Jurowski) offers performances that are near ideal, the electric tension giving the illusion of live music-making. We have had some impressive recordings from this orchestra in the past but this one is among the finest. Tchaikovsky's Third Suite … Jurowski, maybe influenced by conducting opera and ballet, brings out the surging lyricism …'Elegie' , the phrasing totally idiomatic. The rhythmic Waltz leads to a dazzling Scherzo, taken at a genuine presto, while the Variations have rarely seemed so attractive, with a thrilling build-up and conclusion. With exceptionally vivid sound, recorded by Dutch engineers in Moscow, this disc cannot be recommended too highly.” (Gramophone)
