The finest Russian musicians gathered around Yuri Temirkanov and Anna Netrebko 2003 St. Petersburg Gala, celebrating the 300th anniversary of the city

About

To celebrate its three hundredth anniversary, the city of Saint Petersburg offered itself the greatest gift in June 2003: a star-studded billing with as its brightest star was, Anna Netrebko.

Filmed in the Philharmonic concert hall, the event was impressive. Around the Saint Petersburg Philharmonic Orchestra and its conductor, Yuri Temirkanov, were gathered some of the finest Russian musicians. After an intense and luminous Rondo Capriccioso by Saint-Saëns performed by violinist Victor Tretiakov came the legendary Georgian pianist, Elisso Virssaladze, who conquered the audience with a performance of Ravel's Concerto for the Left Hand full of panache.
