Notes & Reviews:

For the 2007 New Year’s Concert in St. Petersburg, Valery Gergiev led the orchestra and chorus of the Mariinsky Theatre in a riveting program captured at the recently inaugurated concert hall designed by French architect Xavier Fabre on the site of the theater’s old set shop. The musical selections include the Overture to 'La Forza del Destino' by Verdi, the finale from Berlioz’s 'Harold in Italy' (with soloist Yuri Bashmet), Rimsky-Korsakov’s sparkling 'Capriccio Espagnol,' the second movement from Rachmaninov’s 'Symphony No. 2,' Liszt’s 'Second Piano Concerto' (with soloist Yefim Bronfman), Stravinsky’s 'Firebird', and Borodin’s 'Polovtsian Dances.'
