Notes & Reviews:

Firma Melodiya presents a boxed set dedicated to the 75th anniversary of one of the outstanding contemporary Russian conductors Dmitri Kitayenko. This 6 CD set includes recording made by Dmitri Kitayenko in studio and at concert in 1975 to 1987 with the orchestra of the Moscow Philharmonic Society and the USSR State Academic Symphony Orchestra. The chamber pieces by Corelli, Grieg, Respighi and Richard Strauss, Prokofiev's Symphony No. 1, Shostakovich's Symphony No. 10, oratorical works by Donizetti, Brahms, Puccini and Rachmaninoff, and Tchaikovsky's Fantasia for piano and orchestra (solo by Igor Zhukov) included in the set showcase the conductor's stylistic diversity and highest mastery. These recording will be of interest to those who remembers Kitayenko's performances of the past years and to a new generation of listeners as well.
