Mikhailovsky Theatre Chorus & The St Petersburg Philharmonic Orchestra, Yuri Temirkanov
2CDs for 1
Signum Records are proud to present the first release in a new series of live orchestral recordings featuring the illustrious St Petersburg Philharmonic Orchestra, led by their chief conductor Yuri Temirkanov.
These new recordings have been made possible thanks to the recent refurbishment of their home concert venue, the Grand Philharmonic Hall, allowing many of us to hear for the first time the excitement of the Philharmonic's performances in their resident city of St Petersburg. This release will be followed later in the year with their live performance of Shostakovich's Symphony No. 7 (Leningrad).
