Few orchestras in the world possess the acclaim and regard held by the St. Petersburg Philharmonic Orchestra, led for over 20 years by the legendary Yuri Temirkanov. The St. Petersburg Philharmonic Orchestra is soul-stirring, with their deep string sound, luscious brass, and luminous winds. This performance features Rachmaninoff's passionate Symphony No. 2, the most spellbinding of the composer's three symphonies, as well as Prokofiev's Violin Concerto No. 2, one of the finest violin concertos ever composed. Touching, yet brimming with energy, this dynamic work features new violin star Vilde Frang as soloist.
