The attention to detail and scrupulous balance that Jurowski and his orchestra invariably achieve these days were expected but, by the final act, he had gone further, igniting a blistering intensity that threatened to send Glyndebourne’s elegant wooden interior up in flames. With music-making such as this coming out of the pit, nothing is beyond Glyndebourne at the moment.
