Notes & Reviews:

"The secret to Jurowski's success in both works lies in his ability to give the music time to achieve the maximum intensity while using pointed rhythm and characterful phrasing to avoid any suggestion of sluggishness. The result is the sheer brute force that we have every right to expect, without a trace of vulgarity or straining after effect. The music flows, even in the (usually) tacky coda of the First symphony, or in the always difficult-to-pace first movement... Brilliant treble, deep and rich bass, and plenty of both depth and clarity (woodwinds particularly well balanced against the strings) complement the interpretations perfectly. If you love Tchaikovsky, then you'll love this release. It's hot--really hot." -Classics Today (10/10)
