ICA Classics is proud to present Vladimir Jurowski's recording of Tchaikovsky's The Sleeping Beauty. It was recorded live in December 2013 with the 'Svetlanov' orchestra. Jurowski has already accumulated a large catalogue of recordings all of which have received great critical acclaim. He is a proven seller. Jurowski's interpretation is based on his view that Acts 1 & 2 inhabit a Romantic sound world and then between Act 2 and 3, the sound changes completely becoming drier with much sharper outlines. He has said that if it were not for Tchaikovsky's untimely death, he would have developed a similar style of composition to Stravinsky between 1917 and 1928, around the time of Pulcinella. The Sleeping Beauty recorded here is performed complete. The State Academic Symphony Orchestra of Russia is one of Russia's oldest orchestras dating back to 1936. Over the past 80 years, it has been directed amongst others by Gauk, Rakhlin, Ivanov and the great Evgeny Svetlanov. In 1972, it was grated the honorary title 'academic' for it's exceptional creative achievements and in 2006 the State Academy Symphony Orchestra was officially named after Svetlanov. Jurowski was appointed Artistic Director in 2011.
