Yuri Simonov conductor

Mussorgsky Khovanshchina: Introduction (Dawn on the Moscow River) and Dance of the Persian Maidens

Rachmaninov Piano Concerto No. 2

Shostakovich Symphony No. 6

 

Yuri Simonov and the Moscow Philharmonic Orchestra open this enticing all-Russian programme with two vividly-drawn orchestral vignettes written by Mussorgsky for his opera Khovanshchina: the atmospheric prelude depicting ‘Dawn on the Moscow River’ and the sinuous, exotic ‘Dance of the Persian Maidens’. British-born Freddy Kempf, an explosive and very physical pianist, is then soloist in Rachmaninov’s glorious Second Concerto. It opens with bell-like tolling that heralds a succession of sweeping and very Russian melodies, the piano writing breathtakingly virtuosic throughout. In the second half Simonov conducts Shostakovich’s Sixth Symphony. It has rightly gained its place as one of Shostakovich’s most lyrical, atmospheric and, in its latter movements, impishly humorous creations.
