Notes & Reviews:

The Academic Symphony Orchestra of the St. Petersburg Philharmonia was founded as a radio orchestra in 1931. During the blockade of Leningrad, the orchestra performed as almost the only one of that city's cultural facilities available to the public. Conductor Alexander Dmitriev was born into a musical family in Leningrad in 1935, and studied conducting and composition at the Leningrad Conservatory. He is counted among the most significant Russian conductors, and is a shining example of the St. Petersburg school of conducting.
