Jurowski’s interpretation is based on his view that Acts 1 & 2 inhabit a Romantic sound world and then between Act 2 & 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. This release includes notes by David Nice and an interview with Jurowski about his interpretation.
