Conductor Ensembles Composers

Notes & Reviews:

Famed for his colossal stature and rigorous rehearsal methods, Evgeny Mravinsky is generally considered to be the greatest of all Soviet conductors. The maestro was appointed chief of the elite Leningrad Philharmonic Orchestra in 1938 - a post lasting 50 years and which gave rise to a truly remarkable partnership, as evident in this three-disc set. It's easy to hear why the Leningrad Philharmonic became known as the 'best orchestra in Russia' under Mravinsky's command.
