Tchaikovsky - Swan Lake (2018)

Tchaikovsky

State Academic Symphony - GASO

Vladimir Jurowski

Swan Lake is the first of the three great ballets that Tchaikovsky wrote, and arguably the most famous. The piece is mainly known in the shape it obtained in 1895, when it became a classic in the choreography of Marius Petipa and Lev Ivanov. That “imperial” version strayed from Tchaikovsky’s world premiere score, with several cuts, abridgements and displacements. This high definition recording presents the work as it was heard during the 1877 world premiere performance, highlighting the extraordinary symphonic qualities of Tchaikovsky's original conception.

"To me, it is one of Tchaikovsky’s greatest achievements that he brought this symphonic dimension to the ballet, without compromising the lightness of texture and the greatness of the melodic invention. It is still great ballet music, but also a great symphonic score, and I hope this recording will fully lift out this symphonic quality of the music." - Vladimir Jurowski

Swan Lake is performed by the State Academic Symphony Orchestra of Russia “Evgeny Svetlanov” led by its Artistic Director Vladimir Jurowski. Jurowski has recorded extensively for PENTATONE and has received enthusiastic critical acclaim.

Vladimir Jurowski

Born in Moscow as a son of conductor Mikhail Jurowski, Vladimir Jurowski completed the first part of his musical studies in his native town at the Music College of the Moscow Conservatory. In 1990 he moved with his family to Germany where he continued his studies at High Schools of Music in Dresden and in Berlin, studying conducting with Rolf Reuter and vocal coaching with Semion Skigin. In 1995 he made his international debut at the Wexford Festival, where he conducted Rimsky-Korsakov’s May Night. The same year saw his brilliant debut at the Royal Opera House Covent Garden in Nabucco.
