    The Legend of Butterfly Lovers

    £ 9.99

    Susanne Hou was a scholarship student at Torontos Conservatory of Music followed by the Juilliard School. She rose to fame on the international concert scene when she unanimously won the Long-Thibaud, Lipizer and Sarasate International Violin Competitions. Of particular poignancy is the fact that Susanne Hous father Bo Zhi (Alexander) Hou was the top violinist at the Shanghai Conservatory at the time this concerto was written, going on to lead major orchestras in China before and during the Cultural Revolution. Mr Hou was asked to make the world premiere recording of The Butterfly Lovers Concerto but, due to sensitive political and societal circumstances, he ultimately left the country without having had the opportunity to make the recording. He therefore now passes the torch of his legacy in China, and his unfulfilled destiny of recording The Butterfly Lovers Concerto, to his daughter Susanne Hou. More details

    Tchaikovsky: The Sleeping Beauty

    £ 9.99

    Jurowskis 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 Tchaikovskys 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. More details
