Notes & Reviews:

Neeme Jarvi conducts the Bergen Philharmonic Orchestra in the original, uncut version of Tchaikovsky's Swan Lake with James Ehnes as the solo violinist. It is the second installment in Chandos' series devoted to Tchaikovsky's three great ballets, The Nutcracker to follow in 2014.

Sunday Times, 13th October 2013
There is music here seldom heard in the theatre...Some of Jarvi's nifty tempi might prove undanceable, but his light touch keeps the Bergen players on their toes. Ehnes glitters in his virtuoso solos.

BBC Music Magazine, Christmas Issue 2013
[Ehnes] is superb throughout...The Bergen Philharmonic offers the most polished playing, driven by Järvi at often faster than usual tempos...when it matters Järvi abandons his brisk manner for an understated yet manifest sensitivity to Tchaikovsky's poignant lyricism.

MusicWeb International, 12th December 2013
The playing of the Bergen Philharmonic is crisp and powerful as required...Järvi always chooses apt tempi and he really has the music of Act 2 swinging along beautifully...the luxury casting of James Ehnes pays off with the absolute security and purity of sound of his playing in the Danse Russe.

Gramophone Magazine, March 2014
This is a lively and characterful Swan Lake...The Bergen Philharmonic savour the colour and contour of the dances and have been caught by the Chandos team in a recording that has bite and presence. Tchaikovsky's masterpiece in dance is presented in a compelling manner to please all the senses. A very fine swan indeed.
