Hot on the heels of last month’s release of the Tchaikovsky box set with the London Philharmonic, and recordings of Strauss and Mahler orchestral; works (named Andrew McGregor’s CD of the week on BBC Radio 3’s Record Review) and the violin concertos of Britten and Hindemith with the Berlin Radio Symphony Orchestra, Vladimir Jurowski continues to see his recorded legacy issued this month.
The London Philharmonic releases a 7 CD anniversary box celebrating Jurowski’s first 10 years as Principal Conductor, with 22 previously unreleased recordings that challenge and reward the listener in equal measure with Jurowski’s typical flair for brilliant programming, recorded live at Southbank Centre’s Royal Festival Hall and the Royal Albert Hall. The treasures within included Brahms’ German Requiem with soloists Miah Persson and Dietrich Henschel), Liszt’s A Faust Symphony, Enescu’s and Szymanowski’s Third Symphonies, Ravel’s complete Daphnis and Chloe ballet, world premiere recordings of Denisov and Kancheli, and rare Russian works from Glinka, Mussorgsky, Taneyev and Dargomyzhsky Baba-Yaga, Fantasy Scherzo.
ICA Classics are also releasing a recording of Tchaikovsky’s complete Sleeping Beauty ballet score, recorded live in Moscow in 2013 with the State Academic Symphony Orchestra of Russia ‘Evgeny Svetlanov’, of which Jurowski has been Artistic Director since 2011.
