Concert now online: Jurowski conducts Tchaikovsky Symphony No.2
Vladimir Jurowski conductor
London Philharmonic Orchestra
‘Tchaikovsky’s ‘Little Russian’ Symphony (with melodies from the Ukraine) found the LPO entirely in sympathy with its Principal Conductor. What could be more Russian than the bleak horn solo with which the work begins? Here it was played superbly by David Pyatt who was no less impressive later. Vladimir Jurowski’s interpretation was tense and exciting; he pressed the music forward with urgency and rhythmic strength ... Tension was held firmly to the very end and the playing was stunning.’ Anthony Hodgson, classicalsource.com, 8 December 2016
Whether they were in the St Petersburg of the Tsars, or Moscow under the Soviets, Russian composers wrote music without boundaries. Dargomyzhsky imagined Russian folklore’s very worst witch flying from the heart of Russia to the coast of Latvia; Tchaikovsky took a Ukrainian folksong and transformed it into a riot of symphonic colour.
London Philharmonic Orchestra performed this work at Southbank Centre's Royal Festival Hall, 7 December 2016, conducted by Vladimir Jurowski. Concert recorded by K&A Productions
