About

Celebrating the 85th anniversary of the birth of the great Russian conductor Evgeny Svetlanov (1928-2002), this event was filmed in the magnificent room of the Moscow Tchaikovsky Conservatory. Evgeny Svetlanov spent 35 years leading the Symphony Orchestra of the Russian Federation, today nicknamed ‘The Svetlanov’.

Conducted by Vladimir Jurowski, its new director, the concert gathers some of the most acclaimed artists: Yefim Bronfman, Tatiana Pavlovskaya, Vsevolod Grivnov and Sergei Leiferkus.

The programme is a selection of great pieces by Prokofiev, Bartók and Rachmaninov, among them The Bells.

Evgeny Svetlanov began and ended his career with one of his favourite works, Rachmaninov’s choral symphony The Bells. He chose it for his final exam at the Moscow Conservatory and conducted it just two weeks before his death.
