Jurowski came to international attention and recognition
on disc in 2005 with 2 Tchaikovsky releases: Suite No.3
on PentaTone and on the LPO label his debut recording
Tchaikovsky's Manfred Symphony, both widely and
critically acclaimed releases. As Hugh Canning in The
Sunday Times noted 'Jurowski is proving himself one of
the rising podium stars, especially in his native Russian
music', so the Tchaikovsky symphony cycle is a perfect
artistic collaboration with the LPO and the cycle of
numbered symphonies begins here with the release of
the 'bookends' - Symphonies 1 and 6.
Winter Daydreams is seductively atmospheric here, and
under Jurowski's direction, a lightness and pace to
match with the crisp orchestrations giving the impression
of a winter landscape. Tchaikovsky's Sixth Symphony,
Pathétique, captures the doom of his tormented world,
with the tragic finale gaining significance with his sudden
death just days after conducting the first performance in
St. Petersburg.

‘Tchaikovsky always led with his heart – but Jurowski's
fastidious and loving attention to detail in the First
Symphony displayed its classical credentials in ways one
rarely hears. This performance was on the money from
start to finish... If anyone can "reveal" the real
Tchaikovsky, this man can.’ Independent, October 2008
