Notes & Reviews:

This two-disc Chandos set marks the beginning of an exciting new project devoted to Tchaikovsky's ballet scores. We start the survey with the complete score of The Sleeping Beauty, recorded on SACD, and performed by the Bergen Philharmonic and Neeme Jarvi, with Canadian violinist James Ehnes.

Financial Times, 5th January 2013
[JSrvi] turns a second-tier orchestra into a world beater, holding the Bergen Philharmonic in the palm of his hand. Despite speeds that are noticeably faster than you would expect in the theatre, JSrvi makes every phrase dance and smile.

Gramophone Magazine, January 2013
This is a good, practical interpretation of The Sleeping Beauty. The playing by the Bergen Philharmonic is strong and spirited: Jarvi's conducting is rational, adopting as it does the natural pacings and colouristic inflections from which it is possible to appreciate the character of the dances in one's mind's eye...in general JSrvi does a sound job in sustaining the dramatic flow.

MusicWeb International, December 2012
JSrvi seems never to put a foot wrong and the Bergen orchestra impresses as much, conducted by him, as it does under its principal conductor Andrew Litton... the producers have pulled out all the stops and engaged no less a violinist than James Ehnes to play the important violin solos, a strikingly indulgent decision which pays dividends because Ehnes' outstanding technique makes these sections truly memorable.

Sunday Times, 23rd December 2012
From the outset...it is clear that Jarvi has no intention of lingering. His brisk allegros would probably rush the most virtuosic ballerinas off their feet in the theatre. On record, without the distraction of spectacle and dancing, the dramatic momentum hardly lets up, although he and the excellent Bergen players luxuriate in the rapt steps of Aurora's famous Rose Adagio.

The Guardian, 10th January 2013
You might find yourselves in two minds about it. JSrvi's extreme speeds result in a performance to which you can't imagine anyone dancing...The playing is ravishing, though, and a couple of glamorous guest instrumentalists, James Ehnes and Robert deMaine, add real lustre to the concertante violin and cello solos respectively.

American Record Guide, May/June 2013
Jarvi also gives us the complete score, more or less. The Bergen Philharmonic's playing has a polish and sheen to it that is every bit on par with Slatkin's gleaming St Louis Symphony - actually crisper, cleaner, more defined in tone. And Chandos's hybrid SACD recorded sound surpasses them all, with a warmth, clarity, and spaciousness that completely supports what the musicians have achieved.
