About

Boris Tishchenko (1939-2010) was one of the most recognisable and important Russian composers of his time. His studies with Shostakovich – whose mantle as Russia’s leading symphonist he assumed after his teacher’s death in 1975 – proved decisive. Symphony no.8, one of his last completed works, was written to be performed immediately after Schubert’s ‘Unfinished’ Symphony to which it makes reference. The Concerto for Violin, Piano and String Orchestra is rich in emotional depth, lyricism and dance rhythms, while Three Songs to Poems by Marina Tsvetayeva intriguingly fuses popular song with Russian romance.

The conductor Yuri Serov graduated from the St Petersburg Rimsky-Korsakov Conservatory in 1993, and has studied in Salzburg and Weimal as well. As a conductor and a pianist, Yuri Serov has toured many cities of more than thirty countries and has recorded over sixty CDs for a number of labels in Russia, Belgium, Japan and the United States. Yuri Serov is Chief Conductor of the Volgograd Philharmonic Orchestra and is the author of many articles and essays on music. At present he teaches at the St Petersburg Conservatory. He is Artistic Director of the Northern Flowers International Music Festival, and founder and editor of the CD series St Petersburg Musical Archive.
