Tugan Sokhiev, music director of Moscow’s Bolshoi Theatre, conducts two works that in different ways deserve the attribute “enchanting”. On the one hand there is the graceful ballet Pulcinella, in which Igor Stravinsky enriches 18th century music with his own harmonies and rhythms. Georges Bizet’s Symphony in C major, on the other hand – the work of a 17-year-old! – conveys irresistible youthful energy. In addition, there is Camille Saint-Saëns’ First Cello Concerto, both sonorous and brilliant, with Nicolas Altstaedt as the soloist.
