Yuri Temirkanov Conducts Rachmaninov and Rimsky-Korsakov (2013)
In its fourth edition, the Annecy Classic Festival has become a major player in the national and international cultural landscape. In residence at the 2013 Annecy Classic Festival, the St. Petersburg Philharmonic closes the festival and joins forces with its iconic conductor Yuri Temirkanov.
Temirkanov conducts the orchestra in a performance of Rimsky-Korsakov's lush Sheherazade, with its intoxicating scents and the glowing, oriental colours - a journey through One Thousand and One Nights.
Together with multi-gifted musician Denis Matsuev (winner of the International Tchaikovsky Competition), the St Petersburg Philharmonic Orchestra invites us on a journey, whose secret lies in Rachmaninov's famous Piano Concerto No.2 and the Symphonic Dances. Denis Matsuev, the 'Siberian Bear' as they call him, interprets the Piano Concerto No.2 virtuously and passionately.
