    Evgeny Svetlanov

    £ 9.99

    The performance of Tchaikovsky's Symphony No.1 in April 2002 with the BBCSO was the last concert he gave before his death two months later. Svetlanov's studio made Tchaikovsky recordings with the USSR Symphony Orchestra for Melodiya in the 1960's were the cornerstones of the catalogue at the time and he brings an unqualified authority to the Barbican concert recorded here. Svetlanov’s account of Stravinsky's Firebird is superbly detailed and imaginative with the Philharmonia in tremendous form. The digital sound recorded in the Barbican for both performances is totally natural and warm. These live recordings are issued for the first time on CD. More details

    These performances have never been issued before on CD. Shostakovich's Symphony No.10 was given on 21 August 1968, the very night that Soviet tanks invaded Czechoslovakia in a concentrated effort to halt Dubcek's political reforms. The atmosphere in the Albert Hall, as can heard from the shouts of protest, was electric and very tense but after the first few bars, the disruption was finally drowned out and Svetlanov, according to those present, then went on to give the performance of his life. Svetlanov's widow, on hearing this CD, said that the performance brought tears to her eyes and the emotion of that evening came across vividly. Two short bonus titles have been added - Tchaikovsky's 'Melodrama' from The Snow Maiden and two excerpts from Rimsky-Korsakov's Invisible City of Kitezh reflecting the historic three concerts Svetlanov and his orchestra gave in London at the August 1968 Proms. ICA's Ambient Mastering recreates the... More details

    Evgeny Svetlanov

    £ 9.99

    May 2012 marks the 10th anniversary of the death of the celebrated Russian conductor, Evgeny Svetlanov. This is a fitting coupling of Rachmaninov’s The Bells and Prokofiev’s Alexander Nevsky, both written by composers closely associated with the conductor. The performance of The Bells was taken from Svetlanov’s last concert in April 2002 - he died just one month later. The Telegraph called it ‘a performance of extraordinary power and intensity’ whilst the Guardian noted that Svetlanov’s admirers had come to hear a ‘Russian musical figurehead who seemed likely to go on forever’.

    Evgeny Svetlanov

    £ 9.99

    The 10th anniversary of the distinguished Russian conductor Evgeny Svetlanov's death was celebrated in May 2012 when ICA Classics released a coupling of Rachmaninov's The Bells - Svetlanov's last concert, and Prokofiev's Alexander Nevsky, two composers very closely associated with the conductor. Rachmaninov was by his own account, Svetlanov's favourite composer and this new 'live' recording of his Symphony No.2 from the Royal Festival Hall in 1993 with the Philharmonia Orchestra appears here for the first time. The recording is in excellent stereo and Svetlanov was at his most exciting when caught live. To complete the CD is a rare 'live' stereo recording of Svetlanov conducting Leonard Bernstein's brilliant Candide Overture from the Edinburgh Festival in 1978. Svetlanov never recorded this in the studio and has never been issued before. ICA has received wonderful reviews for Svetlanov's recordings of Tchaikovsky's Symphony No.1 and... More details

    Evgeny Svetlanov

    £ 9.99

    ICA Classics have already released four CDs of the great Russian conductor Evgeny Svetlanov in Russian music comprising Tchaikovsky, Stravinsky, Prokofiev, Rachmaninov and Shostakovich. He was also a masterly conductor of non Russian composers of the late romantic era including  Bruckner, Elgar, Mahler as well as Brahms and Debussy, two composers he performed quite regularly throughout his career. This  gripping 1975 concert with the LSO  is recorded in brilliant stereo and has never been available before. The bonus consists of Dame Janet Baker's wonderful singing of the final song from Chausson's Poeme de l'amour et de la mer;  'La Mort de l'amour - Le Temps des lilas'. It derives from the same concert and was previously issued on BBC Legends. More details
