Vladimir Jurowski conductor
London Philharmonic Orchestra
A boxed collection of Tchaikovsky's symphonies conducted by Vladimir Jurowski.
“Vladimir Jurowski has done superb work in London, first as the LPO’s principal guest, and subsequently, since 2007, as their Principal Conductor. His contribution over that period to London’s musical life has been enormous, and maybe too often passes without comment. We rather take him for granted, but shouldn’t, as is everywhere apparent in this fine Tchaikovsky set...
If Jurowski is the hero of this set, so too is Tchaikovsky. How often we underrate the remarkable range of music he produced. This symphonic cycle is one of the great achievements of western classical music. And it’s a tribute to Jurowski and the LPO that these universally excellent performances make that abundantly clear.” David Mellor, Classic FM
