Under the inspired direction of Valery Gergiev, St Petersburg’s Marinsky Orchestra, one of the oldest and pre-eminent symphony orchestras in Russia, returns to Rome with a programme featuring Verdi, Wagner, Tchaikovsky and Shostakovich.
Gergiev is internationally recognised as one of the most outstanding musical figures of his generation. His inspired leadership as artistic and general director of the Marinsky Theatre, where he oversees the Kirov Orchestra, Ballet and Opera, has brought universal acclaim to this legendary institution. The concert also features Alexander Buzlov described as one of the most vivid and talented cellists of the young generation of Russian musicians.
