Vladimir Jurowski conducts Mahler’s Sixth Symphony (Tragic) one of the composer’s less popular symphonies. Born in Russia, Jurowski relocated to Germany in 1990 where he finished his studies in Dresden and then Berlin. JHe made his international debut at the Royal Opera House with Nabucco in 1995. He has been the music director of the Glynborne Festival Opera since 2001 and became the principal conductor of the London Philharmonic Orchestra in 2007. A recent review in The Guardian of his conducting this symphony with the LPO said that Jurowski was too interested in the technicalities of the music to give it the punch it needs.
