InterviewValery Gergiev in conversation with Wilfried Strehle
A Russian evening with Valery Gergiev and Denis Matsuev
In this concert from 2010, Valery Gergiev conducts two of the most popular Russian works ever: In Sergei Rachmaninov’s Third Piano Concerto – here with Denis Matsuev as the soloist – we hear an irresistible mixture of wistful dreaming and virtuoso bravura. Modest Mussorgski’s Pictures at an Exhibition on the other hand show a panorama of overwhelmingly vivid scenes – multifaceted, yet always of an unmistakable Russian colouring.
