"Here (Jurowski) offers performances that are near ideal, the electric tension giving the illusion of live music-making. We have had some impressive recordings from this orchestra in the past but this one is among the finest. Tchaikovsky's Third Suite... Jurowski, maybe influenced by conducting opera and ballet, brings out the surging lyricism...'Elegie', the phrasing totally idiomatic. The rhythmic Waltz leads to a dazzling Scherzo, taken at a genuine presto, while the Variations have rarely seemed so attractive, with a thrilling build-up and conclusion. With exceptionally vivid sound, recorded by Dutch engineers in Moscow, this disc cannot be recommended too highly." (Gramophone)
