Artist:
London Philharmonic Orchestra, Vladimir Jurowski

Vladimir Jurowski is the leading conductor of his generation, and one of the most sought-after, universally acclaimed for his incisive musicianship and artistic vision. His relationship with the London Philharmonic Orchestra started in 2001, and over the ensuing years has become a dynamic and revered artistic partnership.

This 7 CD box celebrates Vladimir Jurowski’s first 10 years as Principal Conductor of the LPO, with 22 previously unreleased recordings that challenge and reward the listener in equal measure with Jurowski’s typical flair for brilliant programming.

Highlights include a disc of short Russian masterpieces, including Dargomyzhsky’s rarely-performed tone poem based on the Baba-Yaga legend, and Mussorgsky’s famous A Night on a Bare Mountain in both the familiar re-orchestration by Rimsky-Korsakov and the composer’s own wildly original version.

Other rarities include music by Prokofiev and Rachmaninoff recorded during composer-themed LPO seasons programmed by Jurowski.

All works here were recorded live at either the Royal Festival Hall or the Royal Albert Hall.
