These early symphonies, conducted by Principal Conductor Vladimir Jurowski, showcase youthful Tchaikovsky at his best. The Second, 'Little Russian', is full of bright, dancing Ukranian folk melodies which build to a joyous final celebration bursting with life. The Third Symphony, nicknamed for its finale in the style of a 'polonaise', takes German and Polish musical styles and transforms them into a truly Russian symphony; one that hints at Tchaikovsky's later balletic works.
'Vladimir Jurowksi is really the perfect advocate for this kind of music. These are live recordings, and they’re really perfectionist in every detail and they have this sheen of a historically-informed performance'
BBC Radio 3 Record Review, 17 November 2018.
