STRAVINSKY FUNERAL SONG
TCHAÏKOVSKY SYMPHONY N°6
BEETHOVEN CONCERTO FOR VIOLON
The first concert of Valery Gergiev’s “residence” at the Festival also marks the return of the Mariinsky Orchestra to the Basilica after twenty years.
With Tchaikovsky and Stravinsky, they are playing in their own backyard, but, above all, it is now one of the leading orchestras in the world.
For Beethoven’s concert for violin, Maestro Gergiev has chosen Daniel Lozakovitj, who is in high demand now by all the orchestras in the world. A young talent worth following!
