Orchestre National du Capitole de Toulouse


Tugan Sokhiev


The fifth recording of Tugan Sokhiev and his Toulouse orchestra, now considered one of the best French ensembles, was issued in 2013 as a CD book with extra DVD content. It was given many critical plaudits and is now reissued in digipack.

Besides his activity as Music Director of the Orchestre National du Capitole de Toulouse, Tugan Sokhiev is now Music Director of the Deutsches Symphonie Orchestra in Berlin and guest conductor of several prestigious orchestras, including the Philharmonia, to which he returns each season. He also enjoys a close association with the Mariinsky Theatre and is in demand from orchestras and opera houses worldwide.

The relationship between Sokhiev and his musicians in Toulouse is increasingly celebrated: Le Figaro described the partnership as "at the centre of French musical life", while Le Monde wrote of “Sokhievmania” after a recent performance in Paris.

The Rite of Spring is terrific: Sokhiev maintains the sense of a structural ritual while keeping you on the edge of your seat throughout.” - The Guardian

Convulsive and compelling.” - The Sunday Times

"the near-choreographic performance of Sokhiev himself is fascinating. His gestures and cues are an object lesson in conducting expertise" - International Record Review (June 2013)
