More details

Yuri Temirkanov conducts the St Petersburg Philharmonic Orchestra in this deeply Russian Proms programme, provoking a rapturous response from the audience and three animated encores. Described by David Nice as ‘creative conducting at its greatest’, Temirkanov’s spine-tingling rendition of Tchaikovsky’s Manfred Symphony displays his deep love of this music. Temirkanov chooses to make a short cut in the third movement of Manfred with more substantial cuts in the finale – the most significant of these being the omission of the closing organ chorale – but thanks to this compelling performance, his overall conception of the work makes a very powerful impact.

“As a breed Prommers are hard to please, but the excited buzz after this first movement [Tchaikovsky] suggests that 'Manfred' is working its magic. The rapt concentration among the string players is both audible and visible, and the final pages are very impressive indeed. ”
