The energy and excitement of the performances under the baton of maestro Valery Gergiev are thrilling. This concert, with the Rotterdam Philharmonic Orchestra, was recorded live at the city's Doelen Hall.
The program includes Debussy's Fragments Symphoniques for D'Annunzio's mystery play Le Martyre de St Sébastien, Prokofiev's Scythian Suite, Stravinsky's Fireworks and his Piano Concerto.
The soloist for the concerto is the Georgian virtuoso Alexander Toradze, a singularly imposing figure at the keyboard.
