The First Russian Revolution Evoked by Outstanding Young Conductor

April 30, 2008

From April 22 to 23, Shostakovich’s Symphony No.11 was recorded by the Royal Liverpool Philharmonic Orchestra under the baton of Vasily Petrenko, the orchestra’s Principal Conductor. Of the first Russian to hold this position in the orchestra’s 168 year history Sir Neville Marinner said, “Vasily Petrenko is extraordinarily gifted both musically and technically.” Petrenko was named 'Young Artist of the Year' at the annual Gramophone Awards in October 2007. He has been Chief Conductor of the State Academy of St. Petersburg since 1994 and was Resident Conductor at the St Petersburg State Opera and Ballet Theatre between 1994 and 1997.

Shostakovitch’s epic symphony, subtitled 'The Year 1905', is the composer’s musical depiction of the tragedy of the First Russian Revolution. Sessions took place at the Philharmonic Hall Liverpool, UK. Tim Handley was the producer-engineer.
