Yuri Temirkanov conducts Berlioz and Tchaikovsky St. Petersburg Philharmonic Orchestra

About

Temirkanov's love for Tchaikovsky is evident throughout this performance. The droplets of the Alpine waterfall which Temirkanov can be seen emphasising with absolute precision of his hyper-expressive, batonless hands, surround another lovely vision: the Alpine fairy, this time dynamically shaded beyond the expectations of the score. With its echoes of the individual's despair in a rustic landscape more lightly worn in Berlioz's Symphonie fantastique, the slightly abbreviated pastoral third movment has an ideal volatility and another beautiful detailed coda.
