This 7 CD box set features the first complete cycle of Tchaikovsky’s symphonies recorded by Vladimir Jurowski and the London Philharmonic Orchestra, including symphonies previously released on the LPO’s label and new recordings of Tchaikovsky’s Symphonies Nos. 2 and 3, Francesca da Rimini and Serenade for Strings.
This premium box set also includes detailed programme notes of all works recorded. The recordings were taken from live performances spanning Jurowski’s relationship with the Orchestra, from 2004–2016. Jurowski and the LPO’s previously released recordings of Tchaikovsky’s works have garnered great critical acclaim: Symphonies Nos. 4 and 5 (0064) were Gramophone’s Editor’s Choice, while his recording of Manfred was a BBC Music Magazine Disc of the Month and now sits in the Penguin Guide to Recorded Classical Music.
All recordings have been taken from live concert performances at Southbank Centre’s Royal Festival Hall, apart from the Serenade for Strings which was recorded at Snape Maltings Concert Hall.
