Jurowski Conducts Mahler's Symphony No. 8

Vladimir Jurowski

Symfonieën - Verschenen op 3 september 2021 | London Philharmonic Orchestra

Hi-Res Booklet
Munich, September 1910. A tidalwave is flooding the world of music. Mahler's Symphony No. 8 in E-flat major has just premiered, conducted by the composer himself. This monumental symphony was a triumph in terms of its duration and the number of performers involved. Mahler's impresario, Emil Gutmann, used the term "Symphony of a Thousand" for promotional purposes, much to the composer's displeasure. It was an inspired turn of phrase though, which has persisted to the present day.The two-part work uses two forms of writing which differ in every respect: the Veni Creator Spiritus, a ninth-century Latin poem probably written by the monk Raban Maur, and the ending of Goethe's Faust. However, an impression of great coherence emerges from the whole: the two texts each evoke ideas of transcendence, but an incarnate, earthly transcendence, accessible to Man.This production brings together the London Philharmonic with three impressively uniform vocal ensembles (the London Symphony Chorus, the Clare College - Cambridge Choir and the Tiffin Boy's Choir). © Pierre Lamy/Qobuz

Vladimir Martynov: Utopia

Vladimir Jurowski

Cantates (wereldlijk) - Verschenen op 13 november 2020 | London Philharmonic Orchestra

Hi-Res Booklet
Vladimir Martynov’s Utopia Symphony is a musical tribute to Singapore from a son of the Russian avant-garde of the 1970s. Martynov skillfully combines influences from American minimalism and Russian Orthodox chant with a libretto inspired by the ancient text of the Tao Te Ching to create a sound world which seeks to reimagine the concept of utopia. This world premiere recording was made at London’s Abbey Road Studios, under the baton of Vladimir Jurowski. © LPO Live

Symphony No. 11 in G Minor "The Year 1905"

Vladimir Jurowski

Symfonieën - Verschenen op 25 september 2020 | London Philharmonic Orchestra

Hi-Res Booklet
From it's opening notes, to it's final closing breaths, the spirit of revolution is infused into the fabric of Shostakovich's 11th Symphony. Completed in 1957, it remembers the failed uprising of 1905 and hints at Hungary's anti-Soviet rebellion of 1956. Through his powerful, and at times unsettling music, Shostakovich celebrates the revolutionary spirit and offers a cautionary tale about the dangers of complete power. The London Philharmonic Orchestra harnesses the dark intensity and emotion of his writing in this live performance under Principal Conductor Vladimir Jurowski. © LPO Live

Penderecki: Horn and Violin Concertos

Krzysztof Penderecki

Symfonieën - Verschenen op 28 februari 2020 | London Philharmonic Orchestra

Hi-Res Booklet
This release draws on live London Philharmonic Orchestra recorded performances from 2013 and 2015, all of them, except for that of the Violin Concerto No. 1, conducted by Krzysztof Penderecki, the composer of all four works. It pairs a Penderecki classic, the hair-raising Threnody for the Victims of Hiroshima (1960) with three newer works: the Violin Concerto No. 1, the Adagio for Strings (a transcription of the slow movement of the Symphony No. 3), and the Horn Concerto of 2008. While it's true that composers don't necessarily make the best conductors of their works, these are exceptionally compelling performances. Penderecki's career, even according to his own testimony, is conventionally divided into avant-garde and neo-Romantic phases, but what the composer-conductor shows here, is that the division isn't as thorough as it may seem. The Horn Concerto, not a commonly played piece, contains all of the blocks of sound and the structural use of texture that earlier Penderecki works do, and, of course, the grim pictorial quality of the "avant-garde" Threnody has an expressive Romantic aesthetic. All of these works get at another aspect of why Penderecki remains one of the most frequently played contemporary composers: he gives orchestral players a great deal to do, and they consequently play his music enthusiastically. As good a place as any to start with the more recent Penderecki. © TiVo

Ravi Shankar: Sukanya

David Murphy

Opera - Verschenen op 10 januari 2020 | London Philharmonic Orchestra

Hi-Res Booklet
The London Philharmonic Orchestra’s premiere performances of Sukanya in 2017 won universal critical acclaim, described by "The Telegraph" as ‘a charming evening of pure escapism’... Don’t miss this second chance to experience a semi-staged performance of the only opera written by the legendary Ravi Shankar, brought to life through myth, music and dance. After a terrible mistake leaves the ancient sage Chyavana blinded, the beautiful princess Sukanya finds herself marrying for the sake of her kingdom. As a pair of swaggering, meddling gods watch this unlikely union blossom, will love grow in the strangest of circumstances? Taken from the famous Sanskrit texts of the Mahābhārata, the story of Sukanya will be expertly choreographed to combine traditional Indian instruments, Western orchestra, singers and dance ensemble. A one-off chance to recapture the sheer magic of Ravi Shankar, live at Royal Festival Hall. © LPO Live

Jurowski Conducts Mozart Wind Concertos

Vladimir Jurowski

Concertmuziek - Verschenen op 15 november 2019 | London Philharmonic Orchestra

Hi-Res Booklet
Mozart was a master at capturing the spirits of the instruments for which he wrote, perfectly exemplified here in the lighter-than-air Flute Concerto No. 2, the sprightly and playful Bassoon Concerto and in the interplay of the four soloists in the Sinfonia concertante. These three exceptional works come to life in this studio recording with soloists of the London Philharmonic Orchestra and Principal conductor Vladimir Jurowski. © LPO Live

Mahler: Symphony No. 4

Vladimir Jurowski

Symfonieën - Verschenen op 19 juli 2019 | London Philharmonic Orchestra

Hi-Res Booklet
Wie schön, die vielen Glissandi! Die haben uns gefehlt. Zu einer Zeit, in der sich alle Dirigenten, ob jung oder alt, verpflichtet fühlen, ihren Beitrag zu Mahlers Werk zu leisten, während so viele andere Repertoires es verdienen, entdeckt zu werden, scheut Vladimir Jurowski, der sich bereits mehrfach ausgezeichnet hat, und zwar mit großer Freude in der Welt des "tschechischen" Komponisten (Symphonie Nr. 1, Symphonie Nr. 2, Totenfeier), nicht davor zurück, Lösungen zu finden, die heute besonders zweifelhaft erscheinen. Es ist eigenartig, aber so viel Stil kann man nicht ablehnen... Wie Ruhevoll es hier ist! Jurowski setzt seine mahlersche Reise hier mit der Symphonie Nr. 4 fort. Und er bietet einen völlig neuen Weg, bei dem sich die Stimmen von Dvořák und Janáček mit denen von Bruckner und Strauss verbinden. Wäre Mahler vielleicht eine Synthese? Auf jeden Fall ist er gerade deshalb modern und Jurowski weiß das. All dies scheint für ihn zu einem Spiel zu werden. Suchen Sie nicht nach Äther (Auf Wiedersehn Abbado) und auch nicht nach der Ewigkeit (Haitink). Stattdessen gurgeln die großen Flöten, meckern die Klarinetten, erröten die Fagotte, toben die Pauken, und über all diesem böhmischen Lärm fangen die Geigen vor lauter "Beißen" sogar zu singen an. Die vielschichtige Poetik von Bedächtig ist noch nie so um jeden Preis lebendig, natürlich, in strahlendem Dur erklungen. Die Skordatur des zweiten Satzes gibt uns eine kleine Vorstellung von der Hölle und eine Art Vorgeschmack auf die Burleske der Neunten. Aber das Horn besteht immer noch darauf, gehört zu werden, und die Lyrik wird alles gewinnen, auch im Herzen der wiedergekehrten Hölle. Im Schlusslied (Sehr behaglich) führt die perfekte Stimme der Sofia Fomina ihren luftigen Tanz auf, mit einem Hauch kindlichen Geists (Reinheit, Einfachheit), der über „Kein' Musik ist ja nicht auf Erden die unsrer verglichen kann werden“ hinausgeht. Und plötzlich stellt sich die Frage, ob etwa Seefried und Walter die Inspiration für Jurowskis bezaubernde Lesart, einem wahren "Sacre du Printemps" Mitteleuropas, sind? Und wann erscheint die Symphonie Nr. 6? © Pierre-Yves Lascar/Qobuz
