 Vladimir Jurowski Conductor
 Jurowski, Vladimir

Throughout his life, Tchaikovsky was preoccupied with the idea of Fate, describing it as ‘that fatal power which prevents one from attaining the goal of happiness’. This dark force haunts both the Fourth and Fifth symphonies, which each juxtapose some of Tchaikovsky’s most beautiful and graceful melodies with music of intense power and dark despair.
Principal Conductor Vladimir Jurowski continues his journey through the composer’s six symphonies, leading the London Philharmonic Orchestra in these live concert recordings.

 "‘...[Jurowski’s] Fourth is distinguished by intelligent phrasing in the two outer movements and a sense of the symphony’s unstoppable drive, while the Fifth has a lithe pulse and, in the Andante cantabile, exquisite taste."

Financial Times - September 2012

                  CD of the Week

 "...[The symphonies] were recorded (superbly) last year and demonstrate the complete musical empathy between the Russian-born conductor and his players..."

The Sunday Times  - 23 September 2012

                          Recording of the Month

"... Both these performances exemplify what makes Jurowski’s approach to Tchaikovsky so special... The playing throughout is marked by a oneness with Jurowski’s vision and a well-established empathy between LPO players and their conductor..."
